From what I know, most scanners can open zip files without much problem. If the zip if encrypted, then scanners can't open them either.
I have read somewhere, that Scanners have difficulty, scanning Zipped Files.
Zip files are merely archives of other files, and thus they can contain malicious files.
Also, if there is a nasty in a Zip File,the moment you open it,you are infected.
Treat the files inside as you would any other file from the same source.
Any suggestions as the best way to deal with Zipped Files,security wise.?
