Access Protection

Hi Community, this is my first Post/Question

I use ENS 10.5.2 with Agent 5.0.5 and configured from EPO- Server.

I Need to allow some .VBS scripts from the **/Windows/temp/*.vps Folder but the Rule "ACCESS PROTECTION 24h -> Executing scripts by Windows script host (CScript.exe or Wscript.exe) from common user folders " is blocking it, even though i wrote an Exception for it in the Rule itself.

to Keep it simple i excluded **Windows\Temp\*.vbs in the Rule but .vbs Scripts Keep getting blocked.

i do not know what is wrong and my config. it does not matter if i address the single file or if i allow all *.vbs in **/temp/*.vbs  Folders. they get blocked anyway.

Maybe you can see what i am doing wrong.

Thank you very much in advance,

Im checking my Access Protection and wonder what you added in "Exclusions" for this files to be excluded?

In my case, MSIEXEC.EXE have the following settings:

Re: Access Protection


this rule is McAfee defined and you cannot exclude target paths/files. But you can recreate this rule: just create a new rule, add the cscript, wscript, ... executables under "Ausführbare Dateien" and add the TEMP folders under "Untergeordnete Regeln"/"Ziele" but add a "Ziel" with **\Windows\Temp\*.vbs and "Einschlussstatus" is "Ausschließen".
