Hi Kesav,

I am not sure if I understand your question correctly: is SEP for Mac detecting a legitimate file as malicious / blocking it?

If so, have you seen this:

Best Practice when Symantec Endpoint Protection or Symantec AntiVirus is Detecting a File that is Believed to be Safe 

With thanks and best regards,
