Is there a way to display all of the threat names which a Symantec endpoint security product detects?
Follow the steps in each product section to see the threat list. Details on the threat families listed can be found on the Security Response online site.
To search the list for a specific threat or threats, enter some or all of a threat name next to Display names containing. The list updates as you type.
For specific information on a detection, click that detection's name, and then click Learn More. This action opens a new window with information from Security Response.
./sav info -tand press Enter to display the list within the terminal window.
./sav info -t > ~/risklist.txt, and then press Enter.

Given the amount of malware currently in circulation, Symantec recommends protecting every endpoint in an enterprise network (server, laptop, desktop, embedded point-of-sale (POS) and mobile device) with an up-to-date client. It is not sufficient to install an endpoint security program on one server with the expectation it will keep all its clients protected. It is also extremely risky to run LiveUpdate less often than once per day.
Essential information from Symantec Security Response can be found in the article Symantec Endpoint Protection – Best Practices.
Will SEP for Mac detect and remediate only threats that are designed to target Macintosh computers? Will SEPFL only detect and remediate Linux threats?
For example: if an organization has a file server that is running Linux and is defended by SEP for Linux, that server can block threats that target the environment's Windows clients.
