SHA-1 hash values can be blocked using Control Manager’s or Apex Central’s User-Defined Suspicious Object (UDSO). Other Trend Micro products sync the UDSO and take action on a file with matching SHA-1 hash value depending on the configuration.

Another way is with Apex One leveraging Application Control.

The following products sync SHA-1 User-Defined Suspicious Object (UDSO) from Control Manager/Apex Central:

  • Interscan Messaging Security Virtual Appliance (IMSVA)
  • Interscan Web Security Virtual Appliance (IWSVA)
  • Endpoint Application Control (EAC)
  • Deep Discovery Inspector (DDI)
  • Deep Discovery Email Inspector (DDEI)
  • Apex One (requires Application Control)

The following products DO NOT sync SHA-1 User-Defined Suspicious Object (UDSO) from Control Manager/Apex Central:

  • OfficeScan
  • Deep Security
  • Deep Discovery Analyzer (DDAn)
  • Smart Protection Server (SPS)

To block SHA-1 hash values, use any of the following:
