This is how it happened for me. I have Mega installed and use it as my cloud storage. I went into Gallery and uploaded an image to Mega from there. The upload was successful but afterwards I got an error saying the phone had closed the Mega app because it was trying to gain "unauthorised access to system." Others have reported the same error just from trying to open various games. When the error comes up I tap the button to update the security policy but it does not work, it just tells me there are network problems even though I'm on WiFi and it works fine.
I went to the security settings to turn this feature off or at least try and configure it but there is no option to do so. The only way to disable Knox is to root and disable Knox processes with Titanium Backup or similar. The built in application manager in settings does not allow you to disable Knox.
