Had Avast detect three files within a zip that I created come up with a decompression bomb notification. (42110)

The three files within the zip are large Tif files that i also created.

I made the zip while cleaning up old projects.


By the looks of it because of the files size the decompression bomb detection is getting triggered.


Of note these bombs only appear when i do a full scan. Doing a boot scan did not detect them.
