Submitting Samples

If you identified suspicious files, you may submit them to us. Sample files for submission must be in ZIP format and should be password-protected. To submit a ZIP file, file compression software such as Winzip must be used. A trial version of Winzip is available here.

Note: If your Trend Micro product detects a file under this detection name, do not execute the file, or delete it immediately especially if it came from an untrusted or an unknown source (e.g., a Web site of doubtful nature). However, if you have reason to believe that the detected file is non-malicious, you can submit a sample for analysis. Detailed analysis will be done on submitted samples, and corresponding removal instructions will be provided, if necessary.

To compress a file, please follow the steps below:

  1. Right-click on the file and select Add to Zip.
  2. Enter a file name for the zip file.
  3. On the Options menu, choose Encrpyt. In the input box, type virus. This serves as the password for the zip file.
  4. Send the sample through the following channels:
