when a path contains non-standard characters (in my case, it is a "e" with a grave accent) , the rule is not applied and the program still appears in the list of vulnerabilities.

is there a bypass to that ?

thanks for your help.

Hi

The PSI does not allow ignore rules with paths that includes special characters.

This is a known bug, and we intend to fix this in a upcoming release.

Maybe you can leave out the special character somehow and avoid the bug?

Example (using + as special character):

Won't work: C:\Programs\Vendor Name\Program+\Filename.exe
Should work: \Filename.exe

(Note that this will ignore every file with that file name)

I hope this could be helpful for you
