The File Threat Rank is a unique way to classify the security risk of a file.
Instead of judging a file from a pure black and white perspective (harmful / not harmful)
files are classified in one of five categories.
The File Threat Rank is determined by;
Behavior in the system
Think on how the program behaves in your computer. Does it connects to the Internet? And if so, what sites? Does it change your internet start page? Does it change the system files? Etc. ..
Virus scan results
All files are scanned with different virus scans.
From our web page all user can provide us with feedback. All feedback is collected and processed in a score. This includes feedback from Agics
Files are compared to similar files. For example, there are 10 versions of a file known to us. Then we can detect a trend. Differences in size or naming can increase the FTR score.
Heuristic scanning information.
The programming code in files is checked for known viral code.
Existing white and black listings.
Agics already has the files for you compared to existing online black and white listings. The results are also incorporated into the score.
And more ...
This list is not complete. The File Threat Ranking score is constantly being improved. We also re-determine the score of all files regularly.
