    Does McAfee scan inside 7-zip archive file?

      Hi,

       

      I'm using McAfee command scanner for Linux V6.0

      I'm able to use the following commad scan and detect virus inside archives such as zip, tar...

      ./uvscan --noexpire --exit-on-error --delete --analyze --secure ../mcafeetest/v.zip

       

      McAfee detected virus inside archive file successfully

       

      however, it seems McAfee is not able do the same for 7-zip archive, it's not able to detect virus inside the 7 zip file.

       

      ./uvscan --noexpire --exit-on-error --delete --analyze --secure ../mcafeetest/v.7z

       

      The content of above 7z is same as others zip file test before.

       

      any idea why?

       

      Thanks
