Bitdefender blocking my own python scripts and Jupiter notebook write files
Bitdefender blocks python from Mac Terminal or Jupyter notebook from writing files to protected folders even you allowed it.
I used to be able to do this but lately, I cannot.
1. I created an "unprotected" folder named "Test". In an unprotected folder, there is no problem. See screenshot
a. I run a Python script from the terminal to write a file. No problem
b. I run python from a Jupyter notebook to write a file. No problem.
c. I run the same script I used in the Jupyter from Python directly. No problem.
2. However, when I do the same thing in a "protected" folder, but I get permission errors. Even when they have permissions under Bitdefender.
a. Terminal and Python are configured to be "Allowed"
b. I run a Python script from the terminal to write a file. Operation Not Permitted Error
c. I run python from a Jupyter notebook to write a file. I cannot even create the notebook.
d. I run the same script I used in the Jupyter from Python directly. No problem.
- Terminal are granted full disk access from MacOS Security
- This is obviously a Bitdefender bug because it does not occur in an unprotected folder.
