I have tested this policy and noticed it blocks all apps on Read, except rtvscan.exe.

If I want to be able to read inside such autorun.inf, can I add notepad.exe for instance next to rtvscan.exe in Symantec Applications rule? Would adding notepad.exe to the list of approved apps cause any exposure or reduces the efficiency of the policy in any way?

 

I am wondering why Symantec keeps the Create, Delete and Write attempts together and does not allow distinct actions for each of these...

 

Thanks!
