Threat Names - What does it mean?

Hello, all

I've been looking on EPO for reports of the top 10 detected threats, but it is really confusing. Where can I look for what this names means? 



I have a lot of those...Is there some place where I can translate this to something that has more meaning to be analysed?

Re: Threat Names - What does it mean?

The ATP one refers to an untrusted file that will be contained if you have DAC blocking. 

I'm speculating that the downloader one relates to maybe a lnk file that is setup to access remote content, such as described at

Do you have MAR loaded?   If so,  that would give you the needed context.   


Re: Threat Names - What does it mean?

Thanks, Dave. But I dont have MAR. 

I just assumed that it should be some kind of documentation or map to explain exact what this names refer to. I find some things on the Symantec web page but the names are a little different.
