DTAM052 - McAfee VirusScan On-Demand scan must be configured to scan inside archives.


Malware is often packaged within an archive. In addition, archives might have other archives within. Not scanning archive files introduces the risk of infected files being introduced into the environment.


From the ePO server console System Tree, select the Systems tab, select the asset to be checked, select Actions, select Agent, and select Modify Tasks on a Single System. From the list of available tasks in the Task Name column, with the assistance of the ePO SA, identify the weekly on demand client scan task. In the same row as the client scan task under review, under the Task Type column, ensure it is an 'On Demand scan' and in the Status column, ensure that the status is 'Enabled'. In the Task Name column, select the weekly on demand task. Under the Scan Items tab, locate the 'Options:' label. Select the 'Scan inside archives (e.g. .ZIP)' option. Select Save.
