Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: I cant have any virusses on my system i (i5/OS) right?
A: WRONG! You r system i is connected to your companies network and is open through the Integrated File System (IFS), HTTP-server, FTP etc. So your system i can host a virus and spread it through your companies network

Q: Cant i scan my system i (i5/OS) using a PC scanner
A: There are numerous reasons why scanning your IFS using a PC scanner is not the best solution. 

  • PC scanners cannot properly process recursive links.
  • PC scanners cannot detect viruses in UNICODE - java and html.
  • The Scanning PC can itself infect the IFS.
  • PC scanning doesn't provide On-Access Scanning
  • PC scanning doesn't provide Object Integrity Scanning
  • PC scanning doesn't provide i5/OS SMTP Mail scanning
