Note: File systems of UNIX-like OS, such as Linux, can contain special objects that appear as named files but are not actual files containing data (for example, such objects are symbolic links, sockets, named pipes, and device files). They are called special files as opposed to usual (regular) ones. Dr.Web for Linux always skips special files during scanning.
Click Export to save information on the scanning process to the text file. Click the name of a detected threat to open a webpage with information on the threat in your browser (a threat name is a link to the official Doctor Web website; a valid Internet connection is required).
