Description

The Symantec Endpoint Protection Windows endpoint can encounter an issue of Tamper-Protection Bypass, which is a type of attack that bypasses the real time protection for the application that is run on servers and clients. Tamper Protection protects Symantec processes and internal objects from these attacks that non-Symantec processes such as worms, Trojan horses, viruses, and security risks could make. Note that in this circumstance, the tamper-protection bypass only allows altering a small amount of text in one element of the UI.
