Hi there.

I added a hips rule and deny all files operations in a path .

If I access this path by UNC from another pc, I can still modify/delete files in it.

Can someone help to explain why the hips does't work, please? :)

Seems to be so.

I have set a local folder to be visible in the LAN (like "\\server\Runtime"), and added a rule to protect the local path of the folder (like "C:\Users\Username\Runtime"). And apply on all applications.

When explorer.exe tries to create a new folder through the local path, the HIPS will prompt the window; but accessing from Network using explorer.exe doesn't prompt any window. Adding the network path to the protection doesn't help

I have checked with developers, and the statement for now is, that UNC is not officially supported. We will be tracking improvement for adding it to the future versions of our product.

That is very scary to hear. Future version might be 7?
