HRC Errors in HipsShield.logs. What's going on?

There were thousands of these on one of our endpoints. What are they are why are they firing on McAfee Default rules as well as Custom Rules we created with the Wizard GUI?

McAfee Default Example:

08-21 13:42:57 [06744] HRC ERROR:

************

Rule {

    Class Files

    Id 1254

    level 2

    files { Include -e  -apn_txt:\\?*  -list IIS_Ftp_Dir

    }

    time { Include "*" }

    application { Exclude  "$IIS_BinDir\\inetinfo.exe"  -list IIS_Processes

            }

    user_name { Include "*" }

    dependencies -c -d 1240

    directives -c -d files:write

  }

ERROR: Section <files> has no values

REMOVED

Custom GUI Wizard Example:

08-21 13:42:57 [06744] HRC ERROR:

************

Rule {

tag "A Known Bad File Indicator"

Class Files

Id 5714

level 3

files { Include "*\\\\SYSTEM32\\reallybad.exe" }

directives files:execute files:rename files:delete files:permissions files:write files:attribute files:create

}

ERROR: Bad directive - files:permissions

REMOVED

************

Why is the bottom one saying files:permissions is a bad directive? The GUI made this rule when I checked the "Permissions" box.

Re: HRC Errors in HipsShield.logs. What's going on?

you should open a ticket and see what they say. you could try removing the "permissions" setting and just using attributes, since I believe a change to permissions would be an attribute modification as well?
