About Ivanti Antivirus "Infectable File Types" within the Ivanti Antivirus (Kaspersky Engine) settings

Version 7
    This article refers to Ivanti Antivirus using the Kaspersky engine.  This article is not valid for Ivanti Antivirus 2017 (Bitdefender Engine)

     

    The following are the File Types that are scanned when selecting the option "Scan infectable files only" within the Ivanti Antivirus Settings -> Real-time Protection tab, or under the "Virus scan" tab.

     

     

    Infectable file types are identified by their format identifier in the file header rather than by their file extension, ensuring that renamed files are scanned.  Infectable files include: document files such as Word and Excel files; template files that are associated with document files; and program files such as Dynamic Link Libraries (.DLLs), communication files (.COM), Executable files (.EXEs), and other program files. See below for a list of infectable file types by the file format's standard or original file extension.
