U S E R GU I D E
TA S K S E T T I N G S
Application settings that are specific for each task type.
TH R E A T L E V E L
An index showing the probability that an application poses a threat to the operating system. The threat level is calculated
using heuristic analysis based on two types of criteria:
Static (such as information about the executable file of an application: size, creation date, etc.)
Dynamic, which are used while simulating the application's operation in a virtual environment (analysis of the
application's system calls)
Threat level allows detecting behavior typical of malware. The lower the threat level is, the more actions the application is
allowed to perform in the operating system.
TR A C E S
Running the application in debugging mode; after each command is executed, the application is stopped, and the result
of this step is displayed.
TR A F F I C S C A N N I N G
Real-time scanning that uses information from the current (latest) version of the databases for objects transferred over all
protocols (for example, HTTP, FTP, and other protocols).
TR U S T G R O U P
A group to which Kaspersky Internet Security assigns an application or a process depending on the following criteria:
presence of a digital signature, reputation on Kaspersky Security Network, trust level of the application source, and the
potential danger of actions performed by the application or process. Based on the trust group to which an application
belongs, Kaspersky Internet Security can restrict the actions that the application may perform in the operating system.
In Kaspersky Internet Security, applications belong to one of the following trust groups: Trusted, Low Restricted, High
Restricted, or Untrusted.
TR U S T E D P R O C E S S
A software process whose file operations are not restricted by the Kaspersky Lab application in real-time protection
mode. When suspicious activity is detected in a trusted process, Kaspersky Internet Security removes the process from
the list of trusted processes and blocks its actions.
UN K N O W N V I R U S
A new virus about which there is no information in the databases. Generally, unknown viruses are detected by the
application in objects by using the heuristic analyzer. These objects are classified as probably infected.
UP D A T E
The procedure of replacing / adding new files (databases or application modules) retrieved from the Kaspersky Lab
UP D A T E P A C K A G E
A file package designed for updating databases and application modules. The Kaspersky Lab application copies update
packages from Kaspersky Lab update servers and automatically installs and applies them.
