This plugin uses Quttera’s unique, patented, malware scanning and detection technology. The scanning engine employs a multi-layered, heuristic approach to gather the intelligence from the analyzed system and digest it into weighted rules to flag a piece of code as malicious. A self-learning mechanism uses Quttera’s threats intelligence database crowd-sourced from a worldwide network to update the ruleset and improve detection with each subsequent run.
Standard or traditional scanning relies on the signature matching mechanisms. In which the signature of the known threat or its polymorphed variant is compared with the contents (string, e.g.) of the examined file. This technique relies on the existence of the signature in the database to enable the detection. Heuristic approach implements rules, weight-based systems, emulators, flow analyzers, statistical and mathematical methods when probing specific instructions, commands or any other portion of the software. As a result, it allows detecting the potentially malicious functionality in new (previously unknown) malware.
Quttera technology encompasses heuristic and self-learning components. The severity of the detection depends on the danger it can potentially pause. Current implementation offers four (4) severity levels: Clean, Potentially Suspicious, Suspicious and Malicious. If you are not sure whether Potentially Suspicious or Suspicious detection is an actual threat, our team will help you with that. You can contact us via any of the following: a ticket at https://helpdesk.quttera.com, email to [email protected] or through the Support Forum .
