Symantec keeps tab on the changing Threat Landscape and incorporates relevant security on its products.Same is the story with SAV to SEP to now SEP 12..

When we had SAV in the market what our customer needed was just a Antivirus to protect their system from antivirus was looked more as a Availability facilitator than a core security product..till early 2000.

Even though we had SCS (firewall and IPS) seclected people used the other features.

Starting from 2006-2007 that was a high rise in malware being created and vulnerabilities being exploited..slowly the trend changed and it all came down to money making malwares..

FakeAntivirus, Downadup, Various Blackmailing Trojans the audience was not high profile..and SEP 11 very well detect and blocks and does whatever it can..Slowly people started using IPS, ADC and found much more can be done with SEP and they are doing it..

However in last few years there has been targetted...

Today i had a strange problem regarding a HP Software installation. The client had Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 installed.

The windows event log had the following entry:

Target: C:Program FilesSymantecSymantec Endpoint Protection12.1.671.4971.105BinccSvcHst.exe 
Event Info: Open Process 
ActionTaken: Blocked 
Time: Sonntag, 11. März 2012 16:47:26

So the Tamper protection blocked the installation of the HP software.

To fix this you can adapt the 'Exeception Policy' and add an entry for the installation folder of the HP Software. Another way would be to disable tamper protection till the installation is done (remember to update the policy or wait for the policy to be updated)
