I think this should be done by Symantec Endpoint Protection Custom IPS signature

Firewall in SCSP is only basic function, it is mainly harden os system not network

please consider SEP ips signature for your requirement

Check out the System Attack Section section of the IDS Windows Baseline Detection Policy as a framework.  It monitors log files (like the W3SVC\*.log files) for specific calls.

While it will not actually block the event, you can monitor the HTTP calls and take action as necessary.

If a post helps you, please mark it as the solution to your issue.

Hi, Thank you very much.

Under Windows Baseline Detection Policy-->System Attack Section, i can see Alert only on

Successful Attack Attempts (code 200) for the spesific IIS HTTP success code and Error code.

There is no filed to add the above mentioned file path.

Can you please confirm if those files also included in the error code.

In the Global Settings of the System Attack Detection, you can see what file is being monitored.

Click the checkbox next to "Web Attack Detection Options" then hit Edit.  You will see the path to the W3SVC logs.

Hi, we have SCP client installed on windows server 2008 SP 1 and deployed default Prevention and Detection configuration and couple of the policies, but the agent system is only detected event logs under prevention policy, no logs are detecting under Detection policies. i have enclosed the policy details along with the conguration.

can you please let me know what could be the reasion not detecting logs under Detection policy, is there nay group policy need to be deployed on the client system since the Agens are under Domain controler.

Els is there any configuration need to be enabled on the Agent from host end or HIDS management console(Version 5.2.6).

early support from anyone is highly apriciated.
