    • https://esupport.trendmicro.com/media/nss/<VOLUME_NAME>/._ADMIN
 
When you exclude the JAR file from Real-Time scanning, make sure to run On-Demand Scan on the JAR file before accessing it.
There is no need to add /proc, /sys and /var/opt/ds_agent in the exclusion list as they are excluded by default.
