Security prog borks on large files

"When this program is started, the system computes its hash and checks this against a list of approved signatures to decide whether to allow or block the execution. With a large file, the process takes longer than the time allotted for verification. When this time interval runs out, the program is started anyway."

This would never have happened if they used industry standard commercial software from Microsoft.
