The following is the scanning sequence used by the Bitdefender Threat Control feature.

  • All the files that are accessed, downloaded, or copied from the web are intercepted and sent for scanning.
  • The file that is sent for scanning is checked against the Bitdefender Signature Database. The file that matches the database is moved to quarantine and Bitdefender will automatically try to disinfect the threat.
  • B-Have is used to check the file virtually inside the Bitdefender product. If B-Have finds any suspicious, malware-like activity within the file, then it is reported as malicious.
  • The Active Threat Control option monitors all the processes. Based on the malware action on the specific process, a score is assigned to it. Once the score value reaches or crosses the recommended threshold, that specific process is reported as harm.
