Hardened Mode-Aggressive
« on: April 24, 2016, 05:31:23 PM »
I understand that the Hardened Mode set on Aggressive checks executables against a white list on the cloud and blocks ones that are not on the list.  If blocked, it gives you the option to allow executable and make an exception.

Is this correct?

Does it still work in some fashion if you are not connected to the internet?

Someone with more knowledge of this may correct  me but it seems to me, if one is NOT connected to the Internet, then the Cloud data base is not accessible. :)

okay, so it's not accessible. Therefore everything is blocked, or everything is allowed?
