Your browser stands between the attachment and your system. The browser is also hardened (specially if you stay on top of the updates for it) and in addition, Bitdefender Active Threat Control (behavioural analysis) with its IDS will block suspicious actions by it. Chances of having an email sent that contains exploit and this exploit bypassing all layers of defence are very very narrow.How about other attachments like pdf, word, excel etc files? Preview but not downloaded? Do they constitute as threats? I thought BDTS or Norton should scan during the preview stage and if deem a threat should remove the attachment from the email?
