Unsafe and abnormal files

CylancePROTECT Desktop
threat alerts using the Cylance score for the threat. This helps simplify actions like automatically adding unsafe and abnormal threats to the global quarantine list using a device policy.
  • Unsafe:
    A file with a score ranging from 60-100. An unsafe file is one that has attributes that greatly resemble malware.
  • Abnormal:
    A file with a score ranging from 1-59. An abnormal file has a few malware attributes but less than an unsafe file and is less likely to be malware.
Occasionally, a file may be classified as unsafe or abnormal even though the score displayed does not match the range for the classification. This could result from updated findings or additional file analysis after the initial detection. For the most up-to-date analysis, enable auto upload in the device policy.
