Know the distinction between File List and Process Image File List used in Deep Security Anti-Malware Scan Exclusions.
The File List container is used for the images and other regular files. Both process images and regular file types fall under the File List category. However, the appropriate list, whether it is Regular File List or Process Image File List, should be determined for a specific Scan Exclusion.
Below are the list types and their descriptions:
- Regular File List can contain the regular expression file list exclusion while having wildcards.
For example, *.db matches 123.db, abc.db, but it doesn't match 123db, 123.abd, and cbc.dba.
- Process Image File List can only handle a full path, as other formats are invalid. Note that Process Image File List is only supported in Real-Time Scan.
To exclude a process, specify the full path of the process, not just the process file name. For example, C:\Your_Folder\Your_Second_Folder\Your_File.Extension
