Does anyone know if agent 4.8 has a new scanning policy in regards to the folder c:/users/<name>/appdata/local/temp? Our database servers use these directories to compile reports and ever since I upgraded, the times are much slower and in come cases the queries have stopped. We had an entension exclusion but the on-access scanner is now scanning these files where before it wasn't.
To solve the issue, we needed to use a path exclusion to point below the TEMP folder. Anything above that folder, the exclusion would not work.
The agent doesn't do any scanning. All it does is provide a interface to manage all the other McAfee products installed on the computer.
If all you've done is install a new agent and not installed a new version of VSE then the first step is to double check your applied VSE policies in ePO and see if the upgrade hasn't mistakenly applied a default VSE policy instead of your standard one.
Would not be better to exclude by filename (using wildcards) or extension better than exclude the whole temp folder? You are opening a big security whole ....
That is the problem. They are text files but when we use a .txt extension exclusion, it does not work. We needed to use a path to the directory below the temp folder(not the temp folder itself). This why I am confused why the extension exclusion no longer works in the temp folders.Message was edited by: krmason on 23/06/14 9:08:10 GMT-06:00 AM
Normally by default it comes in OAS all files types to be scanned, please try the second option and include the extension .txt as a test and try to see if that works
