View a file score

When a file is submitted to the FACT system, it is analyzed and assigned a score. This value tells users at a glance if any security issues have been detected with a file.

The FACT trust score is a confidence rating based on a ten point scale. The color-coded score assigned to each file reflects the level of trust the FACT system has in the file.
