McAfee Endpoint security Alert "Insufficient system resources" using cx_Oracle in Python:

I am using Cx_oracle for a while in Python but I can not recently import cx_oracle in Python and got this error:


ImportError: DLL load failed: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.


In addition, I get McAfee security alert as shown below:

I reinstalled cx_oracle a few times and it has not worked. Any suggestions?

Hi @Crooks ,

You may try the following.

1. Launch McAfee Endpoint Security.

2. Click Events on the left.

3. Check if there are any block events related to your application.

If Yes, please share a screenshot of the event.

If No, then please follow the KB below to isolate if its anyway related to McAfee ENS.
