If you are participating in Kaspersky Security Network and are using KSN in standard mode, you agree to automatically transmit the following data to Kaspersky:
- Information necessary for scanning files: name and ID of the detected threat according to the Kaspersky classification, hash of the scanned object and type of hash function, and the ID of the utilized anti-virus databases.
- Information about scanned web addresses: web address or IP address whose reputation is requested, web address of the page that was used to navigate to the scanned web address, ID of the connection protocol and number of the utilized port.
- Information about utilized digital certificates required for verifying their authenticity: hash (SHA256) of the certificate with which the scanned object was signed, and the public certificate key.
- General information: type and full version of Kaspersky Security, information about the application components and about the application module updates, and information about the operating system installed on the SVMs and protected virtual machines.
If you are participating in Kaspersky Security Network and are using KSN in extended mode, you agree to automatically send Kaspersky all the data listed in the Kaspersky Security Network Statement. Files (or parts thereof) that could be exploited by hackers to harm the virtual machine or data stored in its operating system may also be sent to Kaspersky for analysis. Extended KSN is used by default. You can disable the use of extended KSN in the policy properties.
You can view the text of the Kaspersky Security Network Statement in the policy properties in the KSN settings section.
If you do not participate in Kaspersky Security Network, the data listed in the Kaspersky Security Network Statement is not transmitted to Kaspersky.
