Exceptions and Virus Protection

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello,

I've included java.exe and javaw.exe to the exceptions list of the Exceoptions Policy in SEPM. 

I now wonder: What happens if the java.exe or javaw.exe file gets infected? These files will be ignored by the Scan because of the Exception I have configured. Is there still some kind of protection in place? Is it correct to assume that the files will not get infected because of Auto-Protect and the fact that Auto-Protect will intercept any tamper attempts to these files?

Thanks!

Hello
Yes TimBee will not infect using this protection.
It turns out that if you are not well monitored this java applet to download and can earn depending on the shell of your machine having total control of it.
But do not worry about the SEP will not happen.

If you exclude them, they will be ignored. So yes, this is a drawback of doing exclusions.

I am agree with Brian, if you exclude the file for scanning, this file will not scanned and it will be easily infected.

Exclusion is baiscally help for the commercial application and server app.
