I am concerned about multimedia files that I download having malware inside them. In the first answer in this forum post, David H. Lipman soon states But then he goes on to note Assuming that the above info is still current, I have a couple questions. First, why does MBAM skip scanning of non-executable files? Yes, executables are the most significant danger. But interpreted file types can still have malware. Like MBAM eventually added support for scanning within archive files, will they eventually add support for scanning all file types? Second, I note that I also use the paid for version of AVG, and when I scanned ~40 GB of media files just now, AVG took only a few seconds. That was about as long as MBAM's scan of those same files. This makes me think that AVG, which is supposed to be a traditional anti virus application, is also not really scanning these files. Should I be concerned?
