Threat Type

Appears only if the detection was triggered by a blocked hash or the ESET Endpoint Security:

Malware - Potentially unwanted applications

Potentially unwanted application - (PUAs) are not necessarily intended to be malicious but may affect the performance of your computer in a negative way.

Hash blocked by ESET Inspect - The file was blocked by hash, that was added in Blocked Hashes section.

Suspicious applications - Include programs compressed by packers or protectors. Malware authors often exploit these types of protectors to evade detection.

Threat Name - The name of the threat that can be found in this list http://www.virusradar.com/en/threat_encyclopaedia

Triggering Executable

The executable that triggered the detection. After clicking the name, you are redirected to the Executable details.

SHA-1 - Hash of the executable.

By clicking the down arrow next to the hash, the context menu shows up, where you can use two options:

Open the Virus Total search page that you can define in the Settings tab.

Copy to clipboard - The hash to your clipboard for further use.

Signature Type - information whether the file is signed or not and how it is signed (Trusted/Valid/None/Invalid/Unknown).

Signer Name - If the file is signed, here you can see the signer of the file

Seen on - The number of computers on which the file was discovered. After clicking on it, you are redirected to the Computers view, with a filtered computers list.

Signature Type - Information whether the file is signed or not and how it is signed (Trusted/Valid/None/Invalid/Unknown).

Signer Name - If the file is signed, here you can see the signer of the file.

Seen on - The number of computers on which the file was discovered. After clicking on it, you are redirected to the Computers view, with a filtered computers list.

File Description - The full description of the file, for example, Keyboard Driver for AT-Style Keyboards.

First Seen - When an executable was first seen on any computer in a monitored network.

Inspected - If the executable is marked as inspected by the user.

Reputation (LiveGrid®) - Is a number from 1 to 9, indicating how safe the file is. 1-2 Red is malicious, 3-7 Yellow is suspicious, 8-9 Green is safe.

Popularity (LiveGrid®) - How many computers reported an executable to LiveGrid®.

First Seen (LiveGrid®) - When an executable was first seen on any computer connected to LiveGrid®.

Action Taken

Cleaned - Executable was cleared from harmful code.

Deleted - Executable was deleted.

Connection terminated - The connection was terminated before the infection could do a harm.

Cleaned by deleting - Executable was deleted.

Was a part of the deleted object - Executable was a part of a deleted archive.

Marked for deletion - Executable is inaccessible and marked for manual deletion.

Blocked - The access to the executable was blocked, but the executable remains.

Integrity Level

Represented by the arrow in the process tree, the grid of Detections tab, and everywhere where the process name is present. These levels are present:

Untrusted - blue arrow downIntegrity_blue. Blocks most write access to a majority of objects.

Low - blue arrow downIntegrity_blue. Blocks most write access to registry keys and file objects.

Medium - no icon. This is the default setting for most processes when UAC has been enabled on the system.

High - red icon upIntegrity_red. Most processes will have this setting if UAC is disabled and the currently logged on user is the administrator.

System - red icon upIntegrity_red. This is a setting reserved for system level components.

Protected process - red icon upIntegrity_red. Is used by some anti-malware services, only allows trusted, signed code to load, and has a built-in defense against code injection attacks.
