Re: NAV CE & Password Protected ZIP Files

What we've seen in testing is if you try to open the zip using the password, NAV immediately flags the file inside as a virus.

Hi,

Sorry for the off topic post but with the flurry of MyDoom variants
appearing with the payload stored in password protected zip files, is there
a way to get NAV CE to detect the virus?

My understanding is that NAV cannot scan the file inside of the zip archive
as it doesn't supply a password to extract it. My understanding at times can
be mistaken though ;)

TIA,
