Disabling a protection

Disabling an Anti-Exploit protection is done through a change to the "Monitoring and Exclusions" action in "SandBlast Agent Anti-Ransomware, Behavioral Guard and Forensics" policy.

Once opened, you can add a new exclusion by clicking "Add location..." and choose the "Certificate" as the new exclusion type.

Once done, you can disable a specific protection by typing:

rulename::xxxx where xxxx is the name of the protection from Forensics report.

So, for example, to disable the protection for ROP you need to type the following:



Click "OK", save changes and install the policy.

The specific Anti-Exploit protection will be disabled.
