ATP lets you submit the files that it detects as suspicious or malicious to Cynic for analysis with a click of a button. However, you may have instances in which you want to submit files to Cynic manually. For example, you may have obtained a file on a USB that you want to analyze before you move it to your network. Or you learn in an intelligence feed about a file that is suspicious.
Your ATP license lets you manually submit files or SHA256 file hashes to the Cynic portal for analysis (up to 20 submissions per day). Cynic supports the following file types:
32- and 64-bit executable
Compressed (e.g., ZIP)
Microsoft Office documents
You can download the results in .pdf format. The Cynic portal is supported on the following browsers: Internet Explorer 10 and later, Chrome, FireFox, and Safari. You must first register as a user with the primary email address associated with your ATP account.
If you have already used your email address to create a Managed Security Services (MSS) or DeepSight account, see the following knowledge base article for how to manually submit files to Cynic.
