Configure the sensitivity level you wish to use when
determining if a detected sample is malware. For all levels other
, fingerprints of
samples, or hashes
, are submitted to Avert Labs to
determine if they are malware. The benefit to you is that detection
may be made available as soon as AVERT Labs publishes the update,
and you would not have to wait fro the next DAT release. The higher
the sensitivity level you choose, the higher the number of malware
detections. However, by allowing more detections, you may also get
more false positive results. Choose from these sensitivity
Disabled — No fingerprints or any
data are submitted to Avert Labs to determine if they malware.
Very Low —The detections and risk
of false positives are the same as with regular DATs. A detection
is made available to VirusScan Enterprise when Avert
Labs publishes it instead of waiting for the next DAT update.
Low — This level is defined as
between Very Low and Medium.
Medium — Use this level when the
regular risk of exposure to malware is greater than the risk of a
false positive. Avert Labs proprietary, heuristic checks results in
detections that are likely to be malware. However, there is some
risk that a detection on a file that isn’t common may result in a
false positive. Avert Labs checks that detections with this setting
will not create a false positive on popular applications and
operating system files.
High — This level is defined as
between Medium and Very High.
Very High —We recommend using
this level only for email and for scanning volumes and directories
that support neither executing programs nor operating systems.
Detections found with this level are presumed to be malicious, but
they haven’t been fully tested to confirm that they are not false
