How does F-Secure FREEDOME scan for viruses?
F-Secure FREEDOME is scanning HTTP traffic and currently blocking the Android application packages (.apk files) considered harmful. For testing and demonstration purposes, FREEDOME is also scanning all files downloaded from certain domains, such as .eicar.org and .amtso.org. The file scan performed is the same rigorous antivirus scan that F-Secure is using also with other products. FREEDOME is selective about the file types due to performance considerations at the moment.
