Will this entry work in F-Secure Policy Manager

*\\HarddiskVolume*\\Program Files\\Microsoft SQL Server*\\SQLServr.exe

    Is that a good idea? I'd think the recent protection suites should be able to afford some defence to memory, as well and malicious SQL injections are not joke, they are a real risk!

    Thanks Tamas,


    I agree but I want to temporarily test performance issues by just excluding sqlservr.exe from real time scanning...

    Hello Richard,


    Yes, you can just use a file name to exclude the object from scanning.


    Best regards,
