The Zero Day Malware (APT) report shows a summary of all the threats identified by APT Blocker as zero-day malware (not identified until after the traffic passed through the firewall).
When APT Blocker encounters a file that it has not seen or analyzed before, it submits the file to the data center for analysis in a sandbox environment. For proxies other than the SMTP and IMAP proxies, the connection is allowed while the device waits for the result of the analysis. When the result is returned, if there is evidence of malware activity in the file, the device generates a log message and the file will appear on the Zero-Day Malware (APT) report.
This report is available when log messages with data for this report exist in the specified time frame. To make sure that your Firebox sends log messages required to generate this report, follow the steps to Enable Logging for this Report.
