    With the next F-Prot antivirus, a new feature is to be protected from those bad archives. Here is a log of the what's new :

    "handling of so called "archive bombs" has been greatly improved. These are archives expand tremendously that cause scanners or other programs to crash or hang because of intensive resource consumption during the scanning of hundreds of levels of archives within archives. The F-Prot Antivirus scanner now flags archive files it finds suspicious and alerts the user that the file "could be an archive bomb"."

    Do nod handle this ?
