What To Do With Files Identified As Malicious
« Reply #2 on: May 24, 2010, 03:22:10 AM »
If you have identified a file that you believe may be malicious then there are very easy methods you can use to investigate it. Please see my article on How To Tell If A File Is Malicious.

If the file is found to be malicious, and not detected by Comodo, then you can submit it to Comodo so that they add it to their blacklist. Instructions for how to do this are given in How to Report Malware to Comodo.

To report it to other AV's please see Antivirus Products and Useful Links.
