- When the Sophos Endpoint Security and Control window shows up, click Configure anti-virus and HIPS to open the Configure settings window.

- Next, Select Authorization to open Authorization Manager window

- In the Authorization Manager window, choose the Suspicious files tab, then choose the Buffer overflow tab, for each tab, repeat these steps:

  • From the Known suspicious files list >> select VcsCore.exe
  • Click the Add button to add the selected files to the Authorized suspicious files list
