IssueRSA Authentication Agent 5.3 for Web for Microsoft IIS adds invalid PATH setting
Corrupt PATH value where the string c:\rsawebeagent is appended but separated with a colon character (:) instead of a semicolon (;)
CGI application failures specific to the CGI application
CauseRSA Authentication Agent 5.3 for Web for Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) does not properly extend the PATH environment variable when invoking CGI processing. A colon character (:) was used as a separator character instead of a semicolon (;) for Window's paths.

In most instances, this goes unnoticed, but can cause problems for some custom CGI applications. It has been reported as causing problems where the CGI applications are Perl scripts.
ResolutionThe problem has been resolved in a hot fix for RSA Authentication Agent 5.3 for Web for Microsoft IIS. Contact RSA Security Customer Support and request hot fix ID19338.
