But if something goes wrong, you need to act fast — and get it right — so that everything turns out fine. That’s why it’s good to know what your antivirus is saying when it encounters this or that threat. Consider this post a cybersecurity fire drill.
By the way, for this kind of situation we have a test file designed to be detected as a threat by antiviruses. The file is completely harmless; it was specially designed for this sort of drill.
