2024 Beta: HIPS blocks Explorer.exe

HIPS blocks Explorer.exe even though…

  1. HIPS is in Training Mode
  2. Explorer.exe is rated as Trusted
  3. The first time HIPS blocked Explorer.exe, I created a rule to unblock it for all components, but HIPS later blocked it again!
  4. The default HIPS rules should whitelist Windows programs like Explorer.exe

Hi etl,

Thank you for reporting.
We will check and update you.
May i know your CIS and win version ?


@C.O.M.O.D.O_RT Thanks for following up. I realized this is not an issue with Explorer.exe specifically, but was the same bug as we are discussing in this thread: List of current bugs - #46 by etl
