Malicious files not found after Scanning

L2 Linker



After scanning, Cortex XDR agent detected some malicious files. But while taking live terminal and remote of that system, I cannot find those files in that particular path. Can anyone please tell, what might be the reason?

Hi Rahul,

Maybe the files got Quarantine?

Hi Epalcev,


Thanks for the reply!


The file was not quarantined. Actually, the file was present in the temp folder and I confirmed with the user, he deleted the temp files yesterday. So, that might be the reason the file was not present in the system.
