Virus Scan - Some files not scanned

 

I noticed most mods have the green status "safe to use" while others show "some manually verified files" but many mods have the yellow status "some files not scanned".

When this is the case do you expect nexus users to handle this by themselfes? If we download say 20 mods that aren't scanned do you really expect users to manually take action?

I mean it's pretty obvious that most people DO NOT do that... i used to upload those mods to virus total and see what happens, but some mods are big (5-8 GB).

Takes ages to upload these to virustotal.

Anyways my issue here isn't even to take responsibility by myself and scan these mods, my question is why are there SO MANY mods that haven't been scaned??

You do have an AI for the virus scans right? Then what is the issue?

I mean, how many users and visitor does nexusmods have? millions?

Scaning for viruses should be nr1 priority?

This is nothing to do with Vortex, so I'm not sure why you're posting this here? 

 

If there are mod pages that aren't properly scanned, feel free to report the mods and a moderator can manually re-trigger the scanning process. 

 

You can also use a bit of common sense, in that if a mod has been on the site for many years with thousands of unique downloads, there's a fairly good chance there's nothing wrong with it even if the scan status isn't updated.
