    Hi there,
    i'm a very active user of a P2P program that is based on BITTORRENT, but when I open a .torrent file ( a very small file that connects you to other users) I get the next message
    Risk Assessment:
    Uncertain

    *> Suspicious Filename - Multiple File Extensions.
    This filename appears to have 7 file extensions.
    The REAL file extension is: .TORRENT

    Is there a option to exclude a .torrent extension from scanning?
    It's not a option to set the file in the allow list because all torrents are different and I use a lot of them
    :D

    Hi ipje, I am not sure if this will work but if all the files have the same extention .torrent & a folder such as C:\bittorrent\downloads\ you could try putting the following in the allow list: C:\bittorrent\downloads\*.* or *.torrent. You will need to rename my example folder path to the one you actually use.
    I have not tried this but it may be worth trying. :)

    Sorry to hear it does not work, can I suggest that you email support@diamondcs.com.au with your problem as they may have another workable solution, or at least take note of the problem for the new version.

    Thanks. Pilli
