Virus on zipped files here?

Zip files in this forum- I do not have an issue currently with my system.

is it possible that a zip file be loaded into this forum, by a maliscious new user and not be scanned? It will only be an issue or contaminate our systems once the file is unzipped?

does the groups have a way to catch this when uploading?

Doug, just being careful.

When I upload any picture or drawing or zipped file,
after the counter gets to 100%, the little icon goes in circles.
I assumed the server was screening it for malware.

Same thing happens when I download.
MS Essentials screens it before releasing it to me.
