Wildfire File Check

Hey Community,


maybe someone can give me a hint or help about the following Topic:


Does Wildfire re-checks Files after we have got a verdict ? For example, if a File is uploaded to Wildfire and the verdict is Benign, but after some Time something has changed in this File and it now has a malicious behaviour, does Wildfire checks the File after some File again ?


Kind regards

Hi @Lukas.Schmitz ,


WildFire does a hash check.

If something changes in the file then the hash will change. So that it is considered a different file by WildFire so will be checked again.
