imageJust a quick heads up on a KB article we just published. This one talks about an issue where attempting to export an Antimalware policy in System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection 2012 (SCEP) fails with the error:

In this case, the error occurred because the policy had an ampersand character (&) in the name but other characters such as ", ', < and > can cause it as well. You can read the entire article here:
