Re: EPO and MA agent logs showing blocked via the rule

I have seen this many times on different systems.

If I remember right we also had a case open with McAfee back in like 2014 or so.

It was nothing to worry about, and I wouldn´t recommend to exclude the svchost.

Best regards

Re: EPO and MA agent logs showing blocked via the rule

Those are entries for the agent self protection preventing injection into its processes.  They are normal and can be ignored for svchost.  There is no way to exclude any processes for self protection.  When you want to be concerned is if functionality is impeded somehow with other processes being blocked.
