How SCEP/Defender determines file type RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, does SCEP/Defender look at file header when determining if given file type is excluded from scanning? 
    I.e. if i have .txt excluded from scanning, will an .exe renamed to .txt be excluded?

  • In this case it will check the extension for exception however it also has some smart behavior so if there is malware with change extension, it could still detect it unless you specifically exclude it.
