2 questions about Avast! 4.5
« on: November 14, 2004, 11:42:19 PM »
hello
1) avast 4.5 has transparent mail scanner - can it scan mails over protocols using SSL ? (pop3s, smtps, etc ?)
2) when I'm downloading by Mozilla compressed file, avast does'n check this file, how to activate scanning compressed files ?

Not sure about 1, so I'm not gonna answer that one.

2] Add the extension of the file to the list of extensions to be scanned in the on-access provider. See if that solves it.

tnx, but it doesn't work .....
zip (and other compressed files) can be scanned only when:
1) you recive it by mail (or you try to send them)
2) you try to decompress files
3) you try to execute executable files inside compressed file

I tried to change this rules, bu I couldn't ...
