Windows Defender Interferes with PostgreSQL on Windows 10
A lot more particularly, when you have a databases transaction operating and the Home windows Defender starts off to scan, the Home windows Defender would label PostgreSQL transaction log as a danger as illustrated in the screenshot captured below. It displays that Home windows Defender labels a PostgreSQL transaction log as a “Exploit:HTML/IframeRef”, which is clearly a false alarm. Home windows Defender would following quarantines the danger and the transaction log results in being inaccessible to the PostgreSQL services.
If you examine expert services in the Home windows 10 host, you will see that the PostgreSQL services is terminated as illustrated in the screenshot below. At this time, any question to the PostgreSQL databases outcomes in failure.
The alternative is to exclude the PostgreSQL transaction log directory from Home windows Defender’s scan. Microsoft describes how this can be finished in this web site.
