Exclusion process cortex?!

L3 Networker

Hi,

How can I create an exclusion in Cortex XDR to stop it from scanning a specific executable??

We have a critical software in our company, and we've noticed that Cortex is constantly analyzing it, causing the machine high CPU and MEM.

How can we exclude this file from the analysis? We want to maintain protections such as Ransomware, just excluding the process monitoring.
It's possible?

Best regards
Tiago Marques

Hi @tlmarques, thanks for reaching us using the Live Community.

 

You need to create a Disable Prevention Rule.

Go to Settings - Exceptions Configuration - Disable Prevention Rules, create a new one, set the name and fill the parameters:

 

- Set the target properties, folder location and executable name, command line, or you can use the signer. Only one is enough.

- Module: try with the Local Analysis and check how it goes, if it is an in-house software it is probably "Unknown" for Wildfire and the agent tries to analyze it locally, consuming CPU and RAM to do it.

- Scope: select the applied profile to the Endpoints with the issue.

You can also go to Detecion Rules - IOC and add an IOC with the application path and/or executable hash (ni the "Type" field):

Let me know how it goes.
