Re: Disable OnAccessScan for local action (move/copy/build)
With ENS you can select the "Let McAfee Decide", also by default file copies between folders will not be scanned ( providing that the files have already been scanned and whitelisted as clean and have not changed ). However this may not help you as you are creating new executable files so these will be scanned at least on first creation..
If you are using a compiler, you have a couple of options. There is no best practice as any exclusion is a hole in security, but you could either:
1. Add your compiler temp/working directories to be excuded, this should help
2. if you add your "compiler.exe" process name to the "Low Risk Process Policy" then you can choose to not scan on read, write or both. This will be a little safer as then anything that your compiler process does will not be scanned. but everything else will within the compiler temp directories..
Just be sure to scan all your finished filesas there is malware that can add it's own source code to projects which could be compiled into your final binaries!
