Re: Responsibility

The scanning tools are of use in detecting known malware, but not so useful for finding the new stuff. If it's a method for providing a basic CDN for delivery, most of the content is likely unknown to scanning, and it can also be obfuscated if the initial vector can decode it on the victim's machine. Those two factors make scanning less useful.
