How does the network drive scanning work?
Scan network drives setting is enabled by default.
How does it behave?
- Scanning only happens upon execution of (executable) files on the network drive
- Basic open / close, copy / paste operations for a file are not scanned
Testing with EICAR test file:
- The execution of an eicar.com file will only work on legacy 16-bit systems or those which support it. Most 64-bit systems do not support it and therefor a real time scan test will most likely not trigger an alert on that file.
- However, the manual/scheduled scan will still detect the file
