I have a lot of ISO files and when I run Avast, it will find one or two and say it's a decompression bomb.

I found that all that means is it's a file that unpacks to an enormous amount of data - thus "flooding" the unpacking engine as an ISO will do.

It doesn't say ALL my ISOs are like that so I'm curious if it is something I should be worried about?
