Re: McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention Signature ID: 6048 for Outlook.exe buffer overflow

Hello,

By default that rule ID 6048 is Disabled and only logs events. If you observe too much false positives, you can disable logging by editing the rule as follows:

signature.PNGRule 6048

Otherwise if you wonder what it refers and its description, check below article and screenshot:
