ESET File Security Quarantined .dim Files


(Mustafa Hasanbulli) #1

Hello,

I have set up a local Elasticsearch instance with two nodes. I have Logstash sending documents every 15 minutes. Today one of our IT members warned me that there are some "viruses" on the Windows server I was given. When I checked 8 .dim files in the indices of one of the nodes have been identified as "a variant of leronim.512 virus". I have searched for a similar post on the discussion forums but it seems like there aren't any topics related with ESET. Below is a screenshot from the virus protection.

Has anyone seen a similar behaviour?

Cheers.

Edit: I know they are not viruses. Hence, I used quotation marks.

This is a file that lucene creates, it's not a virus.

See https://lucene.apache.org/core/6_0_1/core/org/apache/lucene/codecs/lucene60/package-summary.html

Thanks for the reference @warkolm. I understand and knew they are not viruses. I think I did not phrase my question clearly. I was just wondering why ESET is marking them as viruses and if anyone came across a similar situation.

You'd have to ask the vendor of the product.
