Hello, we are getting quite a lot of dataguard blocking svchost.exe to change files in protected folders. Is it best practice to allow svchost.exe to change the files in protected folders?
While there are many valid uses of svchost.exe on a Windows computer, it can also be used to host malware in some cases.
Because of this, it is not advisable to blindly allow that process to change files.
