Submitting Objects for Analysis

Submit files and URLs to the sandbox and view the analysis results in Trend Micro Vision One.

Important:
  • The daily reserve limits the number of objects you can analyze per day. Objects with a Not analyzed risk level do not count toward the daily reserve.

    For more information, see Sandbox Analysis.

  • The sandbox detects objects identical to previous submissions. Identical objects are not re-analyzed and do not count toward the daily reserve.

  1. Go to Threat Intelligence > Sandbox Analysis.
  2. Click Submit Object.

    The Submit Object panel appears.

  3. Select the object type.
    • File

      1. Click Select and locate a file for submission.

        Important:
        • The sandbox only analyzes supported file types.

          For more information, see Supported File Types.

        • The total file size cannot exceed 60 MB, including extracted objects.

      2. (Optional) Specify the command line arguments that are used when the sandbox runs the submitted file object.

        A maximum of 1,024 characters can be entered. Arguments apply only to Portable Executable (PE) files and script files.

      3. (Optional) For password-protected files, specify the password.

        Note:

        The sandbox uses virus and infected as default passwords. If the submitted object uses either one as a password, you do not need to specify any passwords here.

    • URLs

      1. Specify a URL with a maximum of 2,048 characters and then press ENTER.

        Important:
        • You can submit up to 10 URLs to the sandbox. Each URL counts as a separate object toward the daily reserve.

        • The sandbox can only analyze HTTP and HTTPS addresses.

        • Domain names must use Punycode (RFC-3492) format.

          URL paths and query strings must use percent-encoding (RFC-3986) format.

          Examples of converting URLs to Punycode and percent-encoding:
