Application Control - Windows system-specific files not included in the whitelist

Jump to solution

Hi,

At page 14 of the McAfee Application Control 8.0.0 Product Guide - Section "How the Whitelisting works", the following text is included:

"When the whitelist is created for Windows, Application Control does not include system-specific files
that are protected by the operating system. For example, pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys."

Where can I find the full list of these system-specific files which are not included in the whitelist? I did not find this information anywhere (datasheet, Knowledge Center, etc.)

Thanks in advance,

Alan.

Hi @Alan1

I'm afraid no such list exists. The main two files which are excluded are - as already mentioned in the guide - pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys.

Was my reply helpful?
