    The terminology of the labelling is very confusing.

    I believe that the threatsense engine parameter is should just be labelled "advanced settings" in each of the perspective categories. It really has nothing to do with the actual threatsense.net

    If leaves one thinking that if they don't have threatsense.net activated, then these threatsense engine parameter settings aren't really "on" per se.


    Very confusing and needs to be relabelled.

    TheatSense.Net inclused advanced heuristics, generic detection, sample and statistics submission... so it's an integrated system for monitoring emerging threats that helps us in research and thus providing you better protection.

    The topic is about the threatsense parameters. They are labelled as though they are part of threatsense.net, which in fact they are not. They are "advanced settings" for each module and have nothing to do with threatsense.net

    For example: Advanced heurisics is one setting in the threatsense parameter engine in each module. Turning this on or off has nothing whatsoever to do with the actual threatsense.net

    Why are they labelled the way they are? Showing them this way makes it appear that none of those options will function if one chooses to not use threatsense.net
