    Instant file scan

    zina

      Hi,

       

      Does somebody know if there is a way to scan a file locally on MWG 7?

      The problem is that i'm trying to scan eicar.txt file using ICAP and it has not been recognized as a threat. For same file in ZIP format it works and recognized as "EICAR test"

       

      Thanks

          Hi Zina,

           

          Text (.txt) files by nature are not executable, as such will not be detected as a malicious file.

           

          The MWG has options in the Anti-Malware engine which instruct it on how to handle such inert files. For performance reasons I recommend leaving this option alone, but see screenshot below which can be changed if you were curious.
