VSE 8.8 - What does it scan

Hi All

 

I am having an interesting discussion around what is acutally scanned by the On Access Scanner and would appreciate it if anyone could point me at a definitive KB or document.

 

As far as I am aware the On Access Scan component will only ever scan file and folder access, a process is scanned as it is loaded into memory and once there the OAS leaves it alone, only monitoring what the process reads/writes from disc.

 

The On Demand Scan however will scan in memory for Rootkits and other malicious processes.

 

Have I got this correct?

 

Many thanks all
