The Scan Exclusions setting is a feature that does not scan a specific folder, file, or extension that you specify when you scan your PC. Provides instructions for setting Scan Exclusions.
(1) Set through Scan Security - Scan Exclusions Settings in the V3 UI.
(2) Scan Exclusions Target Settings : Add folders/files/extensions that you do not want to scan.
- You can select an absolute path, the Winodows Program Files folder, and the Windows folder.
- The file name must be in the same format as 'Drive name:\folder name\file name' or 'Environmental variable\folder name\file name'.
- The extension can be up to 260 characters in length. (English characters)
- Separate them with '/' when setting up more than one extension (for example, bmp/gif/txt).
- \ : * ? " . > | cannot be used for extensions, and executable files such as exe, dll, or ox cannot be entered as inspection exception extensions.)
(3) Scan Exclusions Threats Settings: Settings for excluding inspection of known malicious codes
(When applying this setting, the registered malware will be excluded from the inspection, so please use it only when necessary.)
- In the Scan Exclusions Threats Settings, type the malware name in "Malware Exclusions Settings" that appears when you click Add.
- The malware name must be the same as the name diagnosed in V3. Enter the name of the malware, click OK, and make sure that the name of the malware you entered is registered in the list.
Scan Exclusions settings can increase attacks on systems and expose them to security threats.
It is not recommended to set the test exception without thoroughly testing and validation.
