WDEG - Attack Surface Reduction Excluded Folders - Not Working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have noticed a weird issue with Windows 10 that I am hoping someone could assist with please.

    We use SCCM WDEG to add Excluded Folders for Attack Surface Reductions (ASRs) and notice that when I add an excluded folder and resource path, update the compliance on the device.  Run Get-MPPreference and check the Registry the new excluded folder and path have been added successfully. 

    However when running the application the program still fails.

    I have checked the Windows Defender > Operational in Event Viewer and the failure is due to ASR's

    Is there a time limit for this to work?  I have rebooted the device on numerous occasions and this still will not work.

    Is there a known bug in Windows 10 1903?
