How To Know A False/Positive?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, new to SAS and these forums. I have heard a lot about False/Positives but was wondering how you can tell one from a real threat. I installed the latest version of SAS yesterday and it came up with a few things that it said needed to be deleted. I quarantined them but was wondering what they are and if they were real threats. This is the log that it gave me. Thanks in advance, CC

Welcome to the SAS forum.

Sometimes it can be hard to identify malware just by the file name. Reason being, some malware will look like a legit file.

The following is a website in which you can upload a file for examination using numerous antimalware programs (including SAS).
