Re: ATP run DAC when unknown

Hi @User85812084 

Thanks for reaching out to McAfee Community.

Based on the provided details, it looks like ATP is functioning correctly as per the document below.

This needed investigation from our end as well. 

So I request you to reach out to our support by opening an SR and provide us with MER for detailed analysis. 

Was my reply helpful?

If Yes, please give me a Kudo. If I have answered your query, please mark this as solution so that we help other community members.

Re: ATP run DAC when unknown

I would not recommend this.  At Known Malicious, processes should be terminiated, though I would go a step further and recommend this at Most Likely Malicious.  DAC should engage at either Unknown or Might be Malicious.  By only running DAC at known malicious, you will allow known malware to still run.
