Summary

When scanning an EICAR test file, the malware scanning results between Deep Security Agent (DSA) Windows and DSA Linux or Deep Security Virtual Appliance (DSVA) are different.

The Anti-Malware Configuration Properties are shown below:

Details
Public

The issue is a specification of Deep Security. The difference in malware scanning results is due to the fact that DSA Windows uses Anti-Malware Solution Platform (AMSP) while the DSA Linux and DSVA uses VSAPI.

Below are the results when using ActiveAction (Clean):

  • Windows agent shows "Deleted", but the malware is actually quarantined.
  • Linux agent and DSVA show "Quarantined" as the malware is really quarantined.
