Is Metadefender Core compromised while scanning files?

If MetaDefender Core does not support a sandbox scanning model, this means while scanning threats, the files will be extracted and MetaDefender Core does not use a sandbox or a container that runs in a quarantine mode, it could be dangerous that the infected files will compromise the Core-System. Is it correct?

Answer: Writing a malicious file to the disk does not mean it can do any harm. To activate malware, files should be interpreted. We do not interpret or run them, we only use them as bitstreams, so Metadefender Core should not be compromised.
