Anyone here use Avast and got a result saying 'Unable to scan. The file is a decompression bomb'

What is this decompressiong bomb? Shall I get rid of it? Is it a malware on anykind?

A "decompression bomb" is a big file that has been highly compressed, so when decompressing it will take up alot of space and alot of time to decompress and scan.

Oh, what file was it?

It was some internet debug.log thing. I cant remember the name, coz Avast doesnt keep scan records.

I would just leave it.
