Goolge Gmail Scans Password Protected Archive Files


Recommended Posts



When I submit suspicious file/ undetected malware to ESET I compress the file into rar archive, and password protect it with the password “infected”
Is it time to change password "infected"? Goolge Gmail can scan password protected archive files.

Interesting thing what you found out. Have you also tried this with a zip archive?

And maybe another password such as " " (one space), "virus" or "malware"?


BTW: If you don't want to test this all with a real malware you can also use the harmless eicar testfile.
