  • Once you have downloaded a file completely, you can have it scaned by your AV. You won't be getting any virus yet unless you open the file itself.image

    Hi,

    technically it is not possible to scan inside a torrent as the file is beeing delivered in small parts  from various sources at the same time. Only after it is completely downloaded the file can be scanned.

     

    AND it will automatically be scanned by F-Secure in the moment it is complete (unless you have turned off realtime scanning!

    I had an answer from F-Secure tech support, that gives a different impression. I hope it's wrong. Extract below:

     

    "By default, the scan inside archive files is available if you initiate the scan to scan target file/folder or scan the whole computer. The scan inside archive is not running in real-time is because it will slow down the performance a lot as it needs to scan every single item in the background. However the real time scanning will pick up the file once the file are being uncompressed/unzipped."

    Hi,

    the answer you received is correct as well  - but it does not answer your question here!

     

    You were asking about "torrent" downloads and they answered about what happens after download.

     

    After download the file will be scanned, based on the settings for realtime scan. Realtimescna does not look inside archives. but when you open the archive (unpack it ) to the local disk, each file that is extracted will be scanned.

     

    So in the end there is nothing that you should worry about. any file that you can execute is scanned before you execute it (or while you execute it).
