Detected malicious verification code when verifying element – ever run into this scenario while authoring?



Ever run into the ‘detected malicious verification code’ error while authoring?  I ran into the malicious verification error authoring, and couldn’t find any content for this error while authoring a pack.


Watch your copy/paste’s with additional monitoring changes to prevent ‘detected malicious verification code’ errors

In my authoring example, I received the ‘detected malicious verification code error’ after adding Rules, Datasources, and WriteActions (including tasks).  I was copying and pasting DataSources (DS) and WriteActions (WA), thought I had it all.  Uploaded > got the error, and GRR!   Hopefully this will help others authoring to know what to check to get the management pack uploaded.


Simply put – Watch out for typo’s to avoid ‘detected malicious verification code’ errors!

I stumbled across a few websites, but nothing really pointed out to what caused the ‘detected malicious verification code error’ when uploading a management pack.  First, check monitor and rules to verify the DS/WA are called correctly (no errors in file names.  Check the Tasks as well as DisplayStrings, to make sure everything matches.
