Re: need to add one .exe file into white list.

I would suggest submitting the application to our Labs team so they can officially whitelist it for you:

Re: need to add one .exe file into white list.

If this was a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) detection, see this article:

However, if the detection name contains the word 'Artemis', then please review Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) settings, as found in this article:

Note: To avoid most false-positive GTI detections, lower the heuristic sensitivity level to "Very Low" (or Disabled).

Also, if "AKM345.exe" was developed in-house for commercial purposes, consider signing-up for McAfee's Whitelisting Program, as described here:

Finally, if you use separate On-Access Scanner policies for Default, Low-Risk, and High-Risk Processes, then add "AKM345.exe" to your Low-Risk Processes policies, and ensure the policy is sufficiently relaxed to avoid future detections.

Hope this info helps.
