Disable Hosts File Protection in PSB?

Does anyone know of a way to disable the Hosts file protection in PSB?  F-Secure support tells me that it cannot be disabled.  This is odd and somewhat difficult in some scenarios.  Why allow the selection of Hosts file protection in Client Security and not in PSB?  Does turning off "Intrusion Protection" in PSB disable F-Secure's ability to modify the hosts file?  If not, can anyone suggest why not?

Thanks!

It is not possible. To know why, you have to get in touch with the technical support team

Hi,

 

If on your PSB portal you have a possibility to launch Profile Editor in full mode, you can disable this feature in your security profile:

F-Secure Anti-Spyware -> Settings -> Anti-Spyware Scanner -> Real-Time Scanning -> Real-Time Scanning Options -> Protect the “Hosts” file.

 

Other workaround is to use chtest.exe utility for modifying the policy setting 1.3.6.1.4.1.2213.38.1.300.100.70.200 manually on the host. By default it’s not final, so you should be able to modify it.
