Block the excution of unsafe file types



  • would like the ability to block the excution of unsafe file types


  • conexware

    i dont know why would PA do that when you have AV on every modern computer.



  • true but if your are using say a mobile computer and cant update your antivirus it would help there.

    Anti virus are only as good as the update.

    what does everyone else think.



  • I can see what you are trying to gain on this david but personally not sure.



  • within archives you can have files which are known to be dangerous if you you can stop these being executed than it will stop virus and people running them. Happen to me in the past.



  • But how are they run?
    Would you want PA to “override” user controls (double click etc)?



  • if someone clicks on an archive and opens it up and then clicks a file excluded bt pa pa should then stop its execution and say this is in the list of bab files for security.

    Bit like a virus program can force certain files not to run if you tell it to.

    How many times have you found a archive infected but need to access it to get the uninfected files out of it?
    i have.

    Anivirus dont work trust me

    Now I understand!!! I agree! I have NIS 2012, and used NOD32, McAfee and Avast! all of such have ok archive scanning facilties. However, its never gaurenteed.

    Implementing Pro and Toolbox with Archive Security Handling process would be a good idea!
