Kaspersky has the ability to scan your OS for vulerabilities. If it found software that is missing important security updates, it will be shown in the event as "Detected"
The solution is try to update your Windows and Office and other applications that Kaspersky found as "vulnerable"
More info on the above in the forums:
>>>Are the found viruses and malware removed from my computer? And how is that different than “quarantined”?
Quarantined items means you or the antivirus program has move a file in a safe location where the "file" cannot do any harm, cannot be use. It is sent to quarantine if you or the antivirus found the file as "suspicious" and you want to investigate or send for analysis.
If the result of the research or analysis is "clear" (not infected), you have the option to restore the quarantined files.
You should have the option in Kaspersky on how you want KAV to attend on suspicious files. Example: Automatically send to quarantine.
It's recommended to allow Kaspersky AV to automatically neutralized/heal/disinfect the "confirmed" malware.
Most antivirus will keep a copy in the quaratine before removal (if it's can disinfect but removal is the only option).
I use Kaspersky and run a periodic scan. What does it mean when the scan indicates that it found ?22 events??
Is an event necessarily dangerous?
Each scan reports vulnerabilities as ?detected?. That is not the same as ?removed? or ?neutralized?. Are the found viruses and malware removed from my computer? And how is that different than ?quarantined??
And finally, some of the detected events declared "highly dangerous" are from highly regarded sources, e.g., Detected vulnerability Highly dangerous

This simply doesn't make sense to me.
Can someone please explain to me what the heck a virus scan actually accomplishes?
