    Artemis question




      Yesterday I submitted a couple of samples to AvertLabs and (very quickly) received extra dats and info on how to use the beta dats on the other.


      I asked if the detections would be included in Artemis detection but was told that they should be included in the normal dats in 30 days.


      My question is: Are detections awaiting approval/QA for inclusion in dats, included in Artemis detections or are the two completely seperate entities. Or is it due to the QA/approval process time anyway that would prevent it from being included?

          Artemis detection is for (PE) executable files. If you submitted a (NON-PE) document or script file - then it's going to be covered only via the DATs.


          If you could post the submission id - I can check on the files and let you know about Artemis coverage.

            Hi Vinoo,


            Thanks for the info.


            This one I got an extra.dat file for: 3-1264456231

            and this one i was told to use the beta dats: 3-1264456211


            These submitted on 5 October so i was wondering that if they have already been included in the normal dats, then from what you are saying they would have been included in Artemis detection first?

            Am I correct in saying this?


            Thanks very much.

              Hi Jane,


              Detection for all the malicious files are already in the 6138 DATs or in Artemis. Shown below is the timelines for how long it took for the files to get detected.

              Beta DATs are recommended in cases where enhanced cleaning is required and an extra.dat won't suffice. Once detection for the sample is included in the Beta DATs it could take upto 24 hours for it to show up in the next production dat release. Artemis based detections are decoupled from this process.
