General Discussion Windows Defender July Update - Will delete legitimate file from famous copyright case (DeCSS) (self.sysadmin)
I have an archived copy of both the Source Code and Complied .exe forDeCSS, which some of you may be old enough to remember as the first succesfuly decryption tool for DVD players back when Windows 2000 reigned supreme.
Setting a Windows Defender exception to the folder does not prevent the quarantine from occurring. I re-ran this test three times trying exceptions and even the entire NAS drive as on the excluded list.
I feel like this is a pretty big issue that could get swept under the rug in this conversation. Does this mean that whitelists are basically pointless now?
Yeah that's the real problem, if it starts scanning the directories for our in-house apps we could be up a creek of shit with no paddle. It slows builds down terribly if it actively scans, and if it quarantines files it can cripple the whole app.
