HIDDEN FILES

Postby wabenzi » Fri Oct 03, 2008 10:29 pm

We have recently come to the notice that, the real time scanning doesn’t seems so work properly, especially the virus monitor. This major options of escan doesn’t see hidden file(s) on a specific drive(s).

After scanning the pendrive, it never detected any virus/threat. At the command prompt (DOS cmd), I located the pendrive and I typed attrib it detected some hidden files on the pendrive, and when I tried to execute the files one after the other, escan detected and deleted them as virus. How come the real time scanner and the anti virus monitor couldn’t see this viruses in the first place until I tried to execute the files before and also how come MWAV(10.0.8) couldn’t detect them when I scanned the drive.

Looking forward to hearing from you, it is very urgent. Thank you
THE LOG BELOW IS WHAT I COPIED AT THE DOS CMD PROMPT.

Hello,

eScan Real Time monitor detects and deletes the viruses as and when is is accessed or on account of any related activity. An probably that is the reason it got deleted when you tried to execute it.

MWAV could not delete it probably because it might not have had the latest signature at the time of scanning. If not please send us the mwav.log or post it here for us to analyze it.
