These files are just plain text but CIS 3.9 scans them for like minute each. Wtf!? Makes no sense.
It uses pooload of CPU and takes ages to scan a 4KB file that most of others check in a micro second!?!?
Exclusion system is also a failure. Why scan the file and waste time and resources if the files are EXCLUDED!?!?
Melih (or someone from Comodo) said it scans them anyway, it just won’t report it as infected. I found that the most stupid thing ever. I still have to wait ages for nfo and sfv files even though i’ve excluded them. 88)
I’ve been complaining about this since I started using CIS. I just can’t comprehend that excluded files are still scanned. I’ve decided that there is a language barrier and the folks at Comodo just don’t understand the meaning of the word exclude! I’ve posted the dictionaries definition more than once, but that did nothing. 88)
In any other AV solution that I’ve tried with an exclusion feature, excluding a file actually excludes that file from being scanned…
Also i don’t get it how can a 4KB file present such a struggle for a CIS scanner? I’d understand a heavily crypted and protected file thats dropped into emulator, but simple plain text file that has no cryptographic or compression obsticles is just ridiculous.
Both file types (.SFV & .NFO) are usually (stressing) contained within a compressed archives
.SFV is for verifying the integrity of the archive
well .NFO is just ASCII and not as “important”… but still…
since they are expected being within compressed files - probably, based on that assumption they are really going through some kinda “un-archiving/decryption” ??? 88)
Is an example of one of these files available so that someone else can see if they see the same behavior on their system that you are experiencing on your system? Perhaps you can attach one of the files to a post in this thread.
Probably because they were already checked and stateful scanning just skips them. In my case it sits on NFO or SFV files for a veeeery long time. And these SVF’s are nothing special. The usual stuff that comes with torrents. All i need is someone from Comodo staff to look into it. Here on forums with regular users, we won’t come to any solid conclusion.
