    Hello

    Looking at a Prevx Edge Scan Log, I notice that there is, at the beginning of the line, a kind of code letter(s) between square brackets, and before the name of the scanned file. Like this:

    "[U] c:\program files\storagecraft\imagemanager\imagemanager.exe...".

    The codes appearing (ommiting the brackets) are: B, DN, G, GP, H, HPN, NF, NFP, T, U, UN, UP, UPN.

    I don't know if there are more code letters. These are the ones showed by my Log file.

    Could someone provide information about the meaning of these codes?

    Thanks a lot.

    Rui

    Hello,
    The individual letters may behave differently depending on the system, but:

    B = Malware via signature or heuristics
    G or T = Good
    U = Not completely trusted yet
    D or H generally means a file could be detected heuristically

    The N/F/P are just flags used internally :)

    Please let me know if you need any further clarification!

    Yes - O means Trust Always/overridden
