I am testing Dr.Web for Linux with a trial license.
I have enabled SpIDer Guard, and it is shown as Running in the summary window. As a test, I attempted to download the EICAR test files. SpIDer Gate prevented the download using the standard protocol http links. SpIDer Gate did not prevent download using the secure, SSL enabled protocol https. That I understand.
However, I thought SpIDer Guard would prevent me either from downloading the file through SSL, or it would prevent me from opening the file. But that did not happen either. I was able to download and open the file with SpIDer Guard running. Now when I dragged the file to Dr.Web window for scanning, it was detected as a threat and quarantined. So I am quite confident that SpIDer Gate and the Scanner are working properly.
I don't understand why SpIDer Guard is apparently not detecting and neutralizing threats. I'm particularly interested in this because there are not many anti-virus programs for Linux that offer this type of real-time protection.
Thanks for any info. Other than this issue, I'm finding it to be a really great anti-malware program for Linux.
