Quarantine.db in Quarantine folder

Can someone tell me if this file is put there by the install of ENS or with the first detection of malware?

Being remote, and having triggered EICAR files on my own system I don't have one to look at right now to determine myself.

Hi @Jmac24 ,

Thank you for your post!

Quarantine folder and quarantine.db gets created during ENS installation.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,

GPV

Hi @Jmac24 ,

Thankyou for reaching us on community!

Just to add to @pv 's comment, Quarantine.db file will is just present to maintain the list of files that are quarantined. But, if a file is quarantined by ENS, it would be thrown into  "C:\Quarantine\quarantine\".

Hence, if an EICAR file is detected it would dropped as a archive file into "C:\Quarantine\quarantine\"
