Wanted to run something by you all as this has been on my mind and was also brought up to me by a client.
So in a scenario where a user has WSA on their OS X system, and they are exposed or have come into contact with malware designed for Windows based systems, say through an email attachment. The client and myself want to know if Webroot will detect it (it hasn't in some cases), those files and take action on them so that the OS X user doesn't become a mule to pass on malware to a Windows based user.
My fear is that since the Windows based malware can't technically "run" in an OS X environment, will the WSA agent simply ignore it and treat it just as a benign file because it can't execute anyway in OS X?
They've switched from ESET to Webroot and ESET used to detect whatever malware it saw regardless of whether or not it could run in the OS X environment.
