    Hi Hyvokar,

    If you suspect that:

    A clean file has been falsely detected as malicious, You can submit the file to our labs for further investigation. To submit a sample file, go to Submit a Sample or browse to the following link:

    Select the File Sample tab.

    Click Choose File, and attach your sample file.

    Tick the box I want to give more details about this sample and to be notified of the analysis results if you want to receive feedback from F-Secure Labs on the submitted file.

    Note: Subject and description should be written in English.

    Click Submit sample file.

    The sample submission is analyzed by our analysts and databases, and is updated if necessary.

    For environments where applications change or get updated often, we recommend to configure Exclusions inside your F-Secure product.

    In some cases Deepguard may keep on detecting an application as 'rare' or 'suspicious' after each new update, especially when the application is not widely seen across our customer base:

    Excluding a file or folder (Home Security products)

    Excluding objects (Business Security products)

    Using wildcards in exclusions (Business security products)
