DTAM005 - McAfee VirusScan On-Access General Policies must be configured to prevent users from removing messages from the list.

Information

Good incident response analysis includes reviewing all logs and alerts on the system reporting the infection. If users were permitted to remove alerts from the display, incident response forensic analysis would be inhibited.

Solution

From the ePO server console System Tree, select the Systems tab, select the asset to be checked, select Actions, select Agent, and select Modify Policies on a Single System. From the product pull down list, select VirusScan Enterprise 8.8.0. Select from the Policy column the policy associated with the On-Access General Policies. Under the Messages tab, locate the 'Actions available to user:' label. Uncheck the 'Remove messages from the list' option. Select Save.
