Question on processing Jar files

Does ClamAV teat .jar files in a similar fashion as to .zip's? eg. is the jar broken apart and then individual .class and other files get scanned as well?

Looking into options for whiting signatures for these.

TIA,

Tom

They are zip files, just with some special filenames inside (META-INF/),
so yes ClamAV should unpack them just as
it does with zip files.
