NewsLeecher and my firewall

Post by elbeavero »

Hello, It appears I cannot get NewsLeecher to work with my Anti-Virius. I was wondering if there was any help I could get beside haveing to change my Anti-Virius. Currently I am running Windows Vista 32-bit, and use Symantec Endpoint Protection. From my best description it appears that Symantec Endpoint Protection does not recognize NewsLeecher as a program that is running. If I disable my firewall, NewsLeecher works. It is not listed as a program running in my symantec network activity and but my symantec Log does show it as being blocked. I set a pretty open ended rule for NewsLeecher and it still does not work. Any one have any surgestions?

Have you added the newsleecher.exe to the Network Threat Protection exceptions?

Or maybe in "Add a Centralized Exception policy"?
