McAfee Endpoint Security against WSL (Bash on Windows): preventing access

Hi all,


In the Events Log session, I have a lot of block messages against Bash.exe, and I believe it's preventing me from use apt-get update and another commands from WSL. I already allowed WSL and Bash on Windows firewall, and I cannot disable McAffee for testing because of my organization policies.

How to allow WSL to work fine without bocking its access?


Best Regards



p.s. logs are in Portuguese but I can translate it if needed


DOM_QP\r.santos executou BASH.EXE, que tentou acessar LXSSMANAGERPROXYSTUB.DLL, violando a regra "IDS_AP_RULE_PREVENT_WSL_EXECUTION:IDS_BLADE_NAME_SPB", e foi bloqueado. Para obter informações sobre como responder ao evento, consulte KB85494.
