How to add exclusions for McAfee Security for Mac 1.0

Taken from the post here:

(thanks Sudeep)

To Exclude specific folders under Users profile using RegEx in McAfee Security 1.0 from ePO:

/Users/.*/<your folder path>/.*

To exclude the VMDK files residing anywhere in the machine:

.*\.vmdk - locally

/.*\.vmdk - from ePO

Some more examples for exclusions in MSM1.0/VSMAC 9.0 which utilizes RegEx

Exclude any file based on extension

.*\.ext - locally

/.*\.ext - from ePO

Eg: To exclude .log files from scannning

.*\.log - locally

/.*\.log - from ePO

Excluding Multiple files based on Extensions

.*\.(EXT)(EXT) - Locally

/.*\.(EXT)(EXT) - From ePO

Note: "/" in front is required when pusing down policy from ePO because of a sanity check that happens at ePO level.


Great information.  What would the syntax look like if I wanted to exclude a folder and everything in it, not just by file extension?

This thread has been verfy help for me. But I have a one of with this and wondering you can help. I need to create an exclusion for CS6 (see screenshot). I don't want to add these one at a time and I don't want to the extension. Is there a way to do something like Adobe * CS*?
