DTAM047 - McAfee VirusScan On-Demand scan must be configured to scan boot sectors.


Boot sector viruses will install into the boot sector of a system, ensuring that they will execute when the user boots the system. This risk is mitigated by scanning boot sectors at each startup of the system.


From the ePO server console System Tree, select the Systems tab, select the asset to be checked, select Actions, select Agent, and select Modify Tasks on a Single System. From the list of available tasks in the Task Name column, with the assistance of the ePO SA, identify the weekly on demand client scan task. In the same row as the client scan task under review, under the Task Type column, ensure it is an 'On Demand scan' and in the Status column, ensure that the status is 'Enabled'. In the Task Name column, select the weekly on demand task. Under the Scan Locations tab, locate the 'Scan options:' label. Select the 'Scan boot sectors' option. Select Save.
