Downloaded attachments are always scanned for viruses

Attachments downloaded from emails in Yahoo Mail are automatically scanned for viruses.

It's not possible to turn off automatic virus scanning in Yahoo Mail.

  Good to know: Files uploaded in Yahoo Mail using Dropbox aren't scanned for viruses because those files are located on Dropbox's servers.
