Access Protection rule violation detected and blocked
Recieved the following blocked notification:
NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM ran SYSTEM:REMOTE, which tried to access C:\WINDOWS2012\AUTORUN.INF, violating the rule "Remotely creating autorun files", and was blocked. For information on how to respond to this event, see KB85494.
Went to KB85494 and created an exception in Access Protection _ > Exclusions for C:\Windows2012\**.
Was that not right? Running ENS 10.6.1
For McAfee Default Access Protection rules, the only type of exclusion that can be implemented is a process exclusion, not a file/folder exclusion for the target location.
For this rule in particular, the only way to create an exclusion for a target location would be to create a rule that mimics the behavior of the existing rule, and exclude the target location within the subrule of that AP rule. Otherwise, you are only able to exclude the source process (SYSTEM:REMOTE), which in essence disables the rule without disabling it.
