Why didn't this get quarantined?

Post by ffeingol »

Hello,

CXS 'seems' to have identified this, but for some reason it's not getting quarantined. We've looked over the settings and we must just be missing it. Why isn't this getting quarantined?

Your command line includes this: --qoptions Mv

This means only fingerprint matches and viruses will be quarantined. You should read the documentation about the qoptions setting and decide whether you want other file types to be quarantined and which ones. Bear in mind that there are likely to be false positives for most other types of matches besides fingerprints and viruses.

Regards,
Sarah
