Kaspersky 2012 : Proactive Defense issues with PostgreSQL

We have recently been made aware of issues with running PostgreSQL with Kaspersky 2012 installed.

It would appear that even with exceptions and exclusions in place, Kaspersky's Proactive Defense functionality (explained here on the Kasperky Lab's website) does not allow PostgreSQL to run effectively ,

Our suggestions are as follows :

  • Create exceptions and file exclusions for the postgreSQL files and folders , and for the dolphin application files
  • if necessary , disable Proactive Defense - instructions here  - to check if this is in fact causing the issue 

If neither of these activities help, you may need to consider purchasing a different Anti-virus and security tool.
