Allow PUPs?

One of my users is getting a Malware Detected message for McAfeeGW: Unwanted.MyWebSearc.gen!92. After some research it looks to be a MyWebSearch toolbar that's probably adware, but doesn't look to be a big deal.

Can I let this pass through the filter?

Re: Allow PUPs?

Figured out how to do this with the Antimalware.VirusNames property. Here is an example of my rule.


I really didn't want to pass this through, but after multiple attempts to remove the malware didn't stop him from being blocked, I had to let it pass.
