ws.reputat​ion.1 false alert

Recommended Posts

Hi,

All Norton consumer products (Norton AntiVirus, Internet Security and 360) use the Norton Insight features to test the reputation of files during downloads and scans to check for items like SHA hash tags, digital signatures and the number of users in the general community who have that file on their system before deciding if a file should be "trusted". There is a feature called Norton Community Watch that will submit regular reports about applications running on a user's system back to the Symantec servers so that Symantec knows if a file is "prevalent" in the general community. Files are often flagged as generic WS.Reputation.1 detections when very few users in the Norton community have that file on their computer and are therefore classified as "low prevalence" or "reputation unknown".
