The default setting for the "Skip if the object is greater than..." option is 8MB.
Is it really "safe" to use this option?
If this is checked, does it only apply to the "On Demand" scan and NOT the "On access" scan?
If files greater than 8MB are skipped during the On Demand scan, won't viruses hidden in zip files commonly be skipped (since these files will often be greater than 8MB), and doesn't this run the risk of passing a virus on to somebody else?
I've never seen a virus scan
option to skip files above a certain size limit, so I'm interested in hearing more about this.
The ZASS manual doesn't go into ANY details on this subject, and the ZL "Instant" help section didn't offer any information on this that I could find.
