Hi Furqan Ahmed,

see this post for details about "secureing removable media":

https://community.mcafee.com/community/business/data/blog/2010/05/10/practical-solutions-for-securin...

To block specific file, you may use Virusscan Enterprise for a simple solution:

ePO -> Policy Catalog -> Virusscan 8.8 -> Access Protection Policies -> New Policy / or modify one -> then:

- Enable access protection

- User-defined Rules: New Rule

   - Rule name: *.mp3

   - Processes to include: *

   - File or folder name to block: *.mp3

   - File actions to prevent: All

You may block removable media also with Microsoft onboard posibilities (GPOs) und block unwanted files also by fileserver management-tools (included in your server os).

Re: Controlling of removeable media through EPO4.6.5

Hi Furqan,

you may block any file you want, just type in the "exe"-name of the file - for example: winword.exe - but i think better is, to use "unwanted programs" (PUPs) within virusscan and

define it there.

There is no way to block flash-games, as i know.

You also may not distinguish games/other flash applications, as i know (with virusscan enterprise).

Maybe you could block all flash content for specific user-groups with a gpo.

For example:

Maybe McAfee offers other solutions for this - anyone in this forum knows about it?

regards

Daniel
