Hi Amir,

Virus Total (VT) is an aggregator of different detection patterns and engines from various vendors.  The components of Trend Micro that VT uses in its scanner have every aggressive option setting possible in the engine and pattern enabled, e.g., IntelliTrap patterns, all behavioral silent patterns, etc. Because of this, VT may show a possible detection from a sample that may not show up in a user environment due to the potential differences in options and configurations between VT and a typical user’s production environment. 

The detection solutions used in Virus Total includes newly created proactive and heuristic detections that are very aggressive and generally require more testing and validation before Trend Micro puts these into more mainstream patterns due to the risk of false detection (FA). After these heuristic detections are released in VT, they are refined and adjusted accordingly based on the feedback received from VT users. When disputes are received against possible detections, those respective patterns are re-classified and/or corrected accordingly. The update frequency for this is every two hours (via Smart Scan pattern cloud update).
 
In addition to the latest generally available VSAPI Scan Engine, the detection solution used in Virus Total may contain some beta technology that is being refined before release to Trend Micro’s customers, including some incubation technologies around targeted threat and APT detection. 

Hope that clarifies your concerns. 

Warm regards,
Social Customer Service Team
