The Threat Encyclopedia Help and How-To Page


Welcome to the new Trend Micro Threat Encyclopedia! This site is your source for the latest information on computer threats and security. It focuses on Trend Micro products’ detections of threats that may be in the wild and may affect any number of computers.


Computer threats vary in behavior and purpose. The Threat Encyclopedia will help you understand these threats’ complexity and intentions and thus help you protect your computers by removing these threats should the need arise.


To gain full use of the information found in the Threat Encyclopedia, this page particularly walks you through its contents and how to find your way to get to the information that will be most useful to you. If you have visited the old Threat Encyclopedia before, you may notice some differences between its contents and features and those of this new site. As you go through this tutorial, you will find out and discover what these differences are.
