Summary
Microsoft Forefront Security for SharePoint with Service Pack 2 or earlier versions parses all files that you upload to or download from a SharePoint site. Forefront Security for SharePoint parses each file in preparation for a keyword scan regardless of whether keyword lists exist and regardless of whether keyword lists are disabled. This functionality has changed in Forefront Security for SharePoint Security Pack 3 (SP3).
