Create detection exclusion wizard

A detection exclusion can also be created from the Log files context menu (not available for malware detections):

  1. In the main program window, click Tools > Log files.
  2. Right-click a detection in the Detections log.
  3. Click Create exclusion.

To exclude one or more detections based on the Exclusion criteria, click Change criteria:

  • Exact files – Exclude each file by its SHA-1 hash.
  • Detection – Exclude each file by its detection name.
  • Path + Detection – Exclude each file by its detection name and path, including file name (e.g., file:///C:/Users/user/AppData/Local/Temp/34e1824e/ggdsfdgfd.pdf.exe).

The recommended option is pre-selected based on the detection type.

Optionally, you can add a Comment before clicking Create exclusion.
