Excluding known risks from virus and spyware scans

The security risks that the client software detects appear in the Known Security Risk Exceptions dialog box.

The known security risks list includes information about the severity of the risk.

See Creating exceptions for Symantec Endpoint Protection

To exclude known risks from virus and spyware scans

  1. On the Exceptions Policy page, click Exceptions.

  2. Under Exceptions, click Add > Windows Exceptions > Known Risks.

  3. In the Known Security Risk Exceptions dialog box, select one or more security risks that you want to exclude from virus and spyware scans.

  4. Check Log when the security risk is detected if you want to log the detection.

    If you do not check this option, the client ignores the risk when it detects the selected risks. The client therefore does not log the detection.

  5. Click OK.

  6. If you are finished with the configuration for this policy, click OK.
