McAfee software uses its own Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) technology for enhanced detection of unknown threats based on the behavior of the file. Formerly they named it Artemis.
Artemis is included in the detection name for any file that is quarantined or blocked by GTI. Artemis in this case is not the name of a virus or malware; it indicates that something else was quarantined or blocked by GTI
GTI helps to secure your computer from unknown threats by allowing your McAfee software to communicate with McAfee servers in real time to identify new threats and take appropriate action using a combination of signature and behavior analysis with community threat intelligence.
GTI will quickly notify you if the file should be blocked or quarantined through the following steps:
- VirusScan detects a suspicious file for which there is no signaturein the .DAT database on your computer.
- Using Global Threat Intelligence, your computer sends a fingerprint of the file to the comprehensive database at McAfee Labs.
- If the fingerprint is identified as known malware, an appropriate response is sent to you to block or quarantine the file.
This additional protection is automatically included with your McAfee software.
