My Symantec network threat always showing false alarm

Balack used Ask the Experts™
This is using Symantec Endpoint security 11. The network threat always shows that there are IP tried to attack my desktop, but in fact, I found that that could be a false alarm, probably some bugs with the SEP. Any workaround or patches to "cure" it?

Depends, what exactly is being reported? Can you post your log files?
What version are you using?

There are a couple of bugs on certain versions of sep that behave this way. see

Also if you are running a customer software this might cause a problem too you might need to add an exception.

For example i have a pos software that uses a list view command to list the directories and make sure they are where they are supposed to sep11 shows this as an infected file... (the temp file created to execute the command) and tries to stop the install. I had to add an exception for this file in order to avoid this issue.
