MalwareBytes scan only one archive

Recommended Posts

Hi -

From what I can find out , if you cannot Right click to scan a Zip file then it must be opened first then scanned -

You may pick a problem out by doing a full scan of the drive , but I think it needs opening first - The Zip is to prevent access to the file -

This is like scanning the inside of a bank vault , first you must open the door - If in doubt then delete the file -

Thank You -


Do you know what is in the Zipped files ??

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware doesn't currently scan archives (zip, rar, ace etc) because it only looks for active infections. I do believe the developers have mentioned that they do plan to implement scanning within archives at some point in the future though, although I do not know when.
