Threat Analysis Tools

SymHelp provides access to two threat analysis tools that can be used to help identify potential malware on a system where anti-malware software is unable to detect it. Both tools make use of Symantec Power Eraser technology to identify potential malware by examining load points or by directly examining executable files in directories commonly used by malware. The files are rated based on heuristics and on collected reputation data (Symantec Insight) when there is an internet connection available.

These tools are available in the Threat Analysis Tools section of the Home page.
