I found many files with double extensions are virus, such as *.pdf.exe , *.pdf.vbs, *.doc.exe, *.docx.vbs, etc.  Can Kaspersky block these file ?

Greetings atong,

We will block the file if we find there's malicious code in it. If it's just that the file is named that way, then we won’t block it.

You might be able to block files with something like application control; however, the configuration to block *.exe would be too broad.

I hope this answers your question.

Have a great day.
