Symantec AV is blocking Burp scans

Dear Team Our Organization's Symantec Anti virus is blocking the Burp scans. Please provide any steps required to perform to overcome this issue other than disabling the AV completely. Thanks & Regards Murali

Hi Murali, Based on how our software works, we would suggest whitelisting the application traffic or disabling the AV temporarily whilst you run scans.

Thanks Uthman Is there any specific files and folders that can be excluded from the real-time blocking other than disabling the AV. Thanks & regards Murali

Hi Murali, You need to ensure that all the traffic from Burp is not being blocked by your AV. There are no specific files but I would suggest the installation directory, to begin with. If the issue persists, you will need to disable the AV.
