    I noticed in the documentation for suspicious file detected the option to ignore and add to exception still forbids access to the file. This seems to be inconsistent since exception should be to allow access to the file.

    Also, with every handling option for suspicious files, the file is no longer accessible which can be a problem with false positives. The only way to get a file back is to move it to quarantine and then restore it back from quarantine.

    Since I don't have a file to test, I can't tell if this is how it really works or is the documentation wrong?

    Here are the options -

    Hmm,

    This seems to be a problem. Normally it should be possible to execute/continue executing a file if it was ignored and added to exception list.

    We'll have to test this. Thanks for notification.
