FortiSandbox has an Anti Virus rescan feature. When a new antivirus signature is available, FortiSandbox will perform a second antivirus scan of all the jobs from the last 48 hours whose ratings are Clean or Suspicious using the new signatures. Detected viruses will be displayed as Malicious jobs with the Rescan icon beside the View Details icon. The original job can still be viewed in the job detail page of the rescanned file by clicking the original job ID.

Virus behavior information is not collected as viruses are detected by the AV scanner. The rescan feature allows you to see how a virus behaves while it is being executed inside a VM.

The displayed columns are determined by settings defined in System > Job View Settings > File Detection Columns page. For more information, see Job View Settings.
