ICS-CERT Removed AV Update Publication

Sometime today (I’m pretty sure) the DHS ICS-CERT removed mention of their “Recommended Practice: Updating Antivirus in an Industrial Control System” from both their ICS-CERT landing page and their Recommended Practices page. The previously provided link to this document (that was originally published on January 8th, 2018) now returns an “Access denied. You are not authorized to access this page” message.

I have a copy of the web page from Friday morning that shows the notice for this document on the landing page. I am pretty sure that it was there on both Saturday and this morning when I check the web site. There is no indication that the item was removed, much less an explanation for why. I did not see anything in the document that should have caused any problems and the same information is still available in the Sept-October NCCIC/ICS-CERT Monitor.

It will be interesting to see if this comes back….

BTW: For some reason I never saved a copy of the publication. Could someone please send me a copy? NOTE (added 2-7-18 09:04 EST): I now have a copy from a reader. Thanks to all of those who have offered to provide me a copy.
