Infected files can’t be used in apps or downloaded by app users and studio users
Antivirus definitions in our backend systems are updated every day as new bulletins come in
Coming soon in Q4 to support the new virus scanning –
Fliplet will scan all previously uploaded files and report if any viruses were found
Fliplet will scan files regularly (e.g. every 3-6 months) as new virus definitions are available so we’re able to detect viruses in previously uploaded files
