    Hi All,

    This may not be the correct forum, however looking to understand where I can find actual definition of a Network scanner threat received recently (Muieblackcat) which was blocked by Symantec client


    The understanding is that the threat is detected when a external request comes through for \muieblackcat directory of a webhost however looking for some formal documentation explaining
