A few things about the Quarantine

Hello.

First of all, when I have the option "Quarantine" selected and scan a file (in my case, EICAR testfile), ClamWin moves it to the Quarantine-folder. When I scan and quarantine another file with the same name (eicar.com), ClamWin only reports "File excluded" and doesn't move the file.

Shouldn't ClamWin move it, but with another name suffix?


Moving on to the next thing, I really think ClamWin should rename all quarantined files with numbers. The first quarantined file with a specifik name should be named "file.ext.000", and if you quarantine another file with the same name (file.ext), it should rename it to "file.ext.001".

Wouldn't that be better? Then you don't take any risk that the user executes a file in the Quarantine-folder by mistake - since all files extensions are numbers, and therefore don't execute by default (doubleclicking).
