If scan a URL for example http://some-example.com/file.exe We will attempt to scan the downloaded file. The URL scanner will only enqueue for antivirus file scanning those files that are not text or similar formats (HTML, CSV, XML, etc.). Executables, images, music files, etc. will be always enqueued.
Sometimes the file does not get scanned because:
- The URL response content could not be retrieved at the time of analysis (due to some network error, because the response content is larger than 32MB in size, etc.)
- The download times out
- The server blocks us
