Hello
when I try to run RakeSearch I get now constant security alerts from McAffee
File Name: CanCPUCoreAssa.exe
Path: *\Boinc\Slots\5
Threat Type: Real Protect-LS! 16f24c88d260

If that is a false positive can you submit it as a false positive to McAffee perhaps?
https://www.mcafee.com/support/?locale=en-US&articleId=TS103032&fromSearch=true&page=shell&shell=article-view

I believe not all RakeSearch subprojects use CanCPUCoreAssa.exe
Can you please advise which subprojects are "safe" / not using that .exe ?

Thanks

Hello! Module "CanCPUCoreAssa.exe" used only by application "Generalized symmetries in parastrophic slices for DLS of order 10". It performs part of computations.

I did opt out from "Generalized symmetries in parastrophic slices for DLS of order 10"

But my machine still downloaded work for that project - can you fix that?


Run only the selected applications RakeSearch: yes
RakeBeta: yes
RakeSearch for rank 10: yes
SAT-based search for orthogonal pairs of DLS of order 10: yes
Joint search of ODLS9 with Gerasim project: yes
Joint search of ODLS12 with Gerasim project: yes
Joint search of DLS spectra with Gerasim project: yes
Generalized symmetries in parastrophic slices for DLS of order 10: no

I do not have separate computer locations (Home/work etc) in the settings.

"If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" - that had a tick and I removed it now.

Will let you know if that fixes the issue the next time the machine requests work.

Thanks

It happened again now


"If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" is unticked

and following settings are in place

Run only the selected applications RakeSearch: yes
RakeBeta: yes
RakeSearch for rank 10: yes
SAT-based search for orthogonal pairs of DLS of order 10: yes
Joint search of ODLS9 with Gerasim project: yes
Joint search of ODLS12 with Gerasim project: yes
Joint search of DLS spectra with Gerasim project: yes
Generalized symmetries in parastrophic slices for DLS of order 10: no

Last item is ticked no but still work units are downloaded for it which causes issues with McAffee

Thanks

The executable is probably still located in the project directory.

YOU YOURSELF NEED TO REPORT THE FALSE POSITIVE TO MCAFEE.

UNTIL THEN IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE FLAGGED.

I did reset the project
Also I did opt out of the related sub project but it still downloads Workunits for it...

1) Did you uncheck the box for "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" in correct venue [see below] and save changes?

2) Did you do it in the correct venue (default), home, work, school that your computer(s) running the project in?

3) Wild guess... Disable / uncheck "Run test applications" in preferences, save and see if they still download?

Thanks

I did uncheck the box for "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" before already - I did check now again and the tick was back so I
re-did it and now it stopped downloading the alert and error causing WUs

Thanks again!
