Why has the default home page of my web browser been changed to http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/security_response/index.jsp ?
SEP has the ability to combat homepage hijackers. When the homepage of a SEP client's browser has been redirected to an undesired site by a malicious infection, SEP will change the homepage as part of its remediation. As there is no way of determining what the computers original homepage was, a default of http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/security_response/index.jsp is used unless otherwise configured.
You can specify the URL to use as the home page when the managed Symantec Endpoint Protection client repairs a security risk that hijacked a browser home page. By default if a Security Risk has hijacked the default home page for your web browser, Symantec Endpoint Protection will change it to http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/security_response/index.jsp to protect you. You can change this setting in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Management (SEPM) console.
To accomplish this:
- Login to the SEPM
- Select the Policies button
- Edit your Antivirus and Antispyware policy
- Select Miscellaneous in the Antivirus and Antispyware Policy window
- Under Internet Browser Protection set the URL to something of your preference
- Click OK to save the settings.
