McAfee Application Control (MAC) 6.1, 6.0
Microsoft Windows Vista and later


In a rare scenario, MAC allows execution of non-whitelisted supported files. This happens only when a certain sequence of conditions are met, not in the normal execution workflow.

The following conditions must be met for this to occur:
  • Application Control is in enable mode
  • The process loading the file is not an updater
  • The file is not whitelisted or authorized to execute/load
When all of these conditions are met, un-solidified drivers should not be loaded.


This issue is resolved in MAC
