|Product:||F-PROT Antivirus for Windows|
Please note that version 6 of F-PROT Antivirus for Windows has been released. We recommend that all Home, Corporate and Mail Server users of version 3 of F-PROT Antivirus for Windows upgrade their program to the newest version as soon as possible.
|The Command-Line Scanner (fpcmd.exe) does not detect suspicious files in archives nested within other archives.|
However, you can easily alter the /ARCHIVE switch's default setting by changing /ARCHIVE=n. Where "n" is the desired levels depth and the supported range is between 1 and 99.
The /SERVER switch is a new addition that puts F-PROT Antivirus into mail server mode. Thereby heuristics are enabled that are only enabled by default in mail server versions and fpcmd.exe (Windows command-line version of F-PROT Antivirus). As a result the heuristics will, for example, alert the user on finding suspicious executable files within encrypted archives that are embedded within archives.
Currently F-PROT Antivirus does not support disinfection or removal of infected files within archives. Mailboxes are considered to be archives and therefore F-PROT Antivirus is not able to remove infected attachments. For detailed instructions on how to disinfect infected archives, please see How to disinfect infected archives?.See also:
