CIS 7 - Viruscope: Big slowdown?

I’ve been messing around a bit with CIS 7 (fantastic, by the way), and noticed that it was slowing down my SSD Sequential Read (from 550MB/s to 320) and Random Write (from 88000 IOPS to 63000) in a benchmark. In doing some research, I found that the problem could be System Restore, but that was already off. So, I finally figured out that the problem was Viruscope. It isn’t a huge performance hit, but still…
Does this mean that Viruscope acts very similarly to System Restore? Also, is this something that could be fixed in future releases?

I’m currently using a Samsung 840 Pro (128GB) and used Samsung Magician 4.3 for the benchmark.
