The differences between "Access denied" and "Threat detected"?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

When I tried to download some samples from an anti virus forum, there are two kinds of warning pages after the samples were block by eset.

 

"Access denied" and "Threat detected"

 

For example:

 
 
 
 
ESET SMART SECURITY
Threat detected
Details: Web page: Threat: Win32/TrojanClicker.VB.NZM trojan Comment: Access to the web page was blocked by ESET Smart Security.
 
 
 
 
  Open ESET KnowledgeBase  |  www.eset.com  

 

 

 
 
 
 
ESET SMART SECURITY
Access denied
Details: Web page: Comment: Access to the web page was blocked by ESET Smart Security. The web page is on the list of websites with potentially dangerous content.
 
 
 
 
  Open ESET KnowledgeBase  |  www.eset.com  

 

* I delete some letters in the web page in case no one will click in and get infected.

 

Is there anyone can explain what is the differences between "Access denied" and "Threat detected"?

 

best regards.

Hello,

In a nutshell, the "access denied" message means the page was blocked based on it's URL, IP address, ASN (etc.) for hosting content deemed a threat, and access to that page was blocked. The "threat detected" message means that content was found on the URL page that was blocked because it was deemed a threat.

actually, they are not nutshell. they are all existing in a page of the broswer when enabling the active mode and using the broswer to download the virus.
