Files that are reported as ActiveContent.DI.1 are not considered malicious. However, they contained scripts that may have been designed to make the document dynamic or interactive but are not normally required to display the information within. These scripts may have undesirable side effects such as causing performance degradation or exposing your computer to other risks.

Active content may include various types of scripts, macros, attachments, or other embedded content that is not typically required to read the file contents and is usually intended to execute on your computer when the file is opened.
