Containment running inside Comodo

If I create procedure or script to run on a machine, shouldn’t it automatically be excluded from Containment since the script is running from C:\ProgramData\Comodo\Cis empscrpt?

This is an example of a PowerShell script I am trying to run and it gets blocked:
Data: Unknown Application Running Inside Container Monitor : Unknown application running inside container: C:\ProgramData\Comodo\Cis empscrpt\C_powershell.e xe_23FED9C78D81CD1D1EB8BC375239CC3E44399EE2.ps1

I have checked Itarian - System Templates - File Groups Variables and I have the following exclusion:

Hi @mcfproservices,

Thanks for your idea. I will create a post explaining the steps with a video and share the link.

Please create Ignored rules in a Windows profile

Windows Profile -> Containment -> Rules -> Add Rule

Action -> Ignore

Under Criteria Tab,
File, Types = Files and Target = C:\ProgramData\Comodo\Cis empscrpt\C_powershell.exe_*.ps1

You need to create an Ignored rule which allows starting embedded PS code in a real environment.
In case embedded code has constant content you can use the exact path.

In case embedded code has variable content, you need to use the mask :
C:\ProgramData\Comodo\Cis empscrpt\C_powershell.exe_*.ps1

Add Process, Types = Files, Reputation = Trusted and Path here should be the address of the process which initiates it
In the attached reference video, we used C:\Windows\System32\gpscript.exe for an example

Under Options Tab,
Select the option "Do NOT apply the selected action to child processes

Now move the newly created rule to top order and save the profile.

Please check the attached video for your reference.

Kind Regards,
