ATP Rule 300 - Best way to exclude application (Powerpoint - Xmind)


We've noticed a situation that Powerpoint launches Xmind which executes a cscript and triggers the ATP Rule 300 (Mitre-T1566: Prevent office applications from launching children processes that can execute scripts like powershell and cscript) and block cscript.exe from performing <<c:\windows\system32\cscript.exe //Nologo "C:\Program Files\XMind\resources\app.asar.unpacked\node_modules\regedit\vbs\regList.wsf" A HKCR\.xmind "HKCR\XMind Workbook\shell\open\command">> initiated by xmind.exe.

What is the best way to exclude this or is just disabling this rule the only solution?

Best Regards,

Hi @iverbuyst ,

As a test you may try excluding the Office Filename under OAS > Standard Profile. Then verify if it bypasses ATP.

Reference -

I believe the rule is working as designed. However, you may log a ticket with support to check for other possibilities.
