Effectiveness of Mac malware scan of Windows files?

Recommended Posts

Would using Malwarebytes installed on macOS to scan common Windows PC file types (images, programs, pdf, etc) be just as thorough as scanning those same files using Malwarebytes from a Windows PC?

If one is using Malwarebytes installed on macOS, do malware definitions include all of the definitions found on the Windows version of Malwarebytes (and vice-versa)?

Malwarebytes for Mac does not scan for Windows malware. Honestly, the best place to catch Windows malware is 1) on an e-mail server or other server used to transfer files from one system to another, and 2) on a Windows machine. There are distinct advantages to both of those that do not exist in other contexts.
