Just looking to confirm what if any email attached PDF files scanning protection Webroot has for a Windows 10 OS PC?  Noting receiving more and more such emails with PDF attachments and not opening them out of concern. What level of scan protection is provided using Webroot currently as not seeing current conversations for years on this topic?

Hello @robert828 

 

Webroot does not scan emails or it’s attachments but if you save the file to your PC and if it’s malware then Webroot will detect it with it’s realtime shield, and you can Right Click on the file and and scan it. Also you can upload to VT: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home/upload

Also it’s best if you don’t know the sender delete the email.
