Does scanning compressed files slow down Panda Dome?

Post by hake »

I wondered why scanning compressed files is not enabled by default. Is it because enabling the scanning of compressed files slows Panda Dome?

hello,

a compressed file can have hundreds of files inside, so the analysis can take a long time to finish

Thanks Darth. I could imagine that this slows down the real time protection functions and so slows the whole system. I also guess that when files are decompressed, Panda Dome is on the job scanning the files that are decompressed.

hello,

yes, of course, when the files are descompressed, the antivirus analyze them.
