Security Terms

False Alarm / False Positive

A general term used to describe an uninfected or "clean" file that is mistakenly identified as infected. False alarms occur if a program contains code sufficiently similar to a known malware signature to be deemed a security risk by a virus scanner.

A legitimate program that displays malware-like behavior may also trigger a false alarm from security software with heuristic analysis capabilities.
