Technical Solution



In AV\AS policy, under “advanced scanning and monitoring” under “other options” there is “Delete newly created infected files...” and the sub-option “Delete newly created security risk...”.  

By default the sub option is not checked, but on the client the option is checked.  Additionally you can’t lock this option down by checking the lock, the 2nd sub option is still configurable on the client.
