Signatures

Some of download scripts, as well as downloading the Sanesecurity signatures can also download other Third-Party databases.

The following tables contains a brief list of all Third-Party databases, their brief description and also my opinion on their approximate false positive risk, but your mileage may vary.

It’s also recommended, especially on the high risk groups, to score the detections, instead of an outright block and it’s down to each signature user, to determine their detection rate vs false positive rate for each group.

Any false positives will normally be fixed by each signature producer.

The following databases are distributed and produced by Sanesecurity:
