Exploit Prevention: Added " /tmp/#sql-temptable......" into exclusion

When signature with ID 50009, 50010, 50011, 50012 is being enable (block and report), all "/tmp/#sql-temptable" will be block from being access. Should we exclude those file path for example "/tmp/#sql-temptable*" or just turn off those signature? 



User [mysql] ran [/usr/sbin/mariadbd], which accessed [/tmp/#sql-temptable-2e15-42111-5e16.MAI], violating the rule [Linux - Vulnerability in mysql could allow Elevation of Privileges via symlink attacks] with rule ID [50012] and was blocked.

Hello @MohdAfiq 

Thank you for reaching the support community.

You can test first by enabling those rules for report only and checking any false positives that you get.

Then setting the necessary exclusions via an expert rule.

Hope this helps.

Already enable report only and not being block but in threat event logs its gave us warning. We are sure that this is false positive. Please advise
