The Virus scanner works by pulling the files from our daily scans and comparing them to an industry-leading database of virus signatures to determine if there is any match between your site and known malicious code. Because this is an intensive process and it is important to avoid an impact to your website’s performance, the scan is done on a rolling basis, downloading a piece of your site each day. For most sites, this process completes within 30 days.
