Troubleshooting Anti-virus Software Issues

Symptoms

When you run an analysis, anti-virus software:

  • Reports attempts to introduce and execute unsafe code.

  • Possibly terminates application execution.

Details

Intel Inspector uses dynamic binary instrumentation technology to identify issues and collect results. Some anti-virus software products load a small runtime agent to monitor for the presence of malicious software. These agents may incorrectly identify dynamic binary instrumentation technology as malicious software.

Possible Correction Strategies

Check anti-virus software documentation for a configuration mechanism to treat the application and the Intel Inspector as trusted applications.
