ThreatFire detects IS360 as a 'HIGH' level threat. [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

ThreatFire from PC Tools detects IS360 as a HIGH classiefied potential threat..


Note: Sensitivity level was set on 5/highest. But even that, shouldn't the program just notify it as safe if it is from a trusted company?


Hi blacksea,


That is normal, as IS360 is doing exactly what TreatFire is explaining. Perhaps, it will give the same result with ASC when it is running vital functions.


That program is flagging the fuction as a potential treat regardless of the program name or origin.


When the sensitivity is at maximum in any security software with adjustment of sensitivity, then there will be a lot of false positives as this one.

Hi enoskype,


hmm, so even if it is a program from microsoft it self, no mather if it is trusted. It will always bee shown as a potential threat. Well I have reverted the sensitivity level to 3. It's not very usefull to have it on 5 for me I think.

Hello again


I've used various Antivirus, antivirus all has a module called heuristics.

The heuristic aims to view the files and conduct of same, and it checks whether that conduct or code is similar to a virus (The IObit also has Heuristics)

But not all heuristics correctly detect the virus, sometimes, they identify files as if they were harmless virus


Ai is called the False-Positive




1 - Lower the heuristic at a level medion (it's dangerous to detect other important system files as viruses, oh if he delete the system may become unstable).


See also what happened with McAfee.


2 - Always move all the virus to quarantine.


3 - If ThreatFire detects a file you know does not contain viruses, report this to PCTools.


4 - Av detect a virus in the process, svchost.exe does not remove the instability will not occur in the system there you'll have to format the PC.

Hi sunny,


Your right, it slowed also my surfing a bit. So I have deleted it already. But the site convinced me to download it. But deleted afterwards.
