    Marked As



    Ignore the current alarm. Any new alarms of the same type will still be reported by HSS.

    Isolate and kill

    If a program is isolated and killed, it will be terminated immediately and no longer able to perform read or write operations. Isolated source files of programs or processes are displayed on the Isolated Files slide-out panel and cannot harm your servers.

    You can click Isolated Files on the upper right corner to check the files. For details, see Managing Isolated Files.


    When a program is isolated and killed, the process of the program is terminated immediately. To avoid impact on services, check the detection result, and cancel the isolation of or unignore misreported malicious programs (if any).

    Mark as handled

    When manually handle an event, you can add remarks to record the details about the event.

    Add to alarm whitelist

    Add false alarmed items to the login whitelist.

    HSS will no longer report alarm on the whitelisted items. A whitelisted alarm will not trigger alarms.

    You can click Add Rule and configure file paths in alarm masking rules. HSS will not report the alarms matching these rules.
