Hello,

Depending on the On-Access-scan Action setting either the malicious file will be cleaned or deleted.
Refer below screenshot for VSE and ENS OAS-Action setting.

Depending on Access protection rule the file will be allowed to access/execute as listed below for VSE and ENS.

Hello,

Depending on the file hash values and its symbols a file will be detected with the help of DAT/Amcore by VSE/ENSTP.

For daily DAT-V2 for VSE and Amcore-V3-for ENS you can refer the below link.

Let us know if you have any queries.
