Sophos Anti-Virus does not support the fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon filesystem which is commonly used by the Nautilus File Browser to mount remote shares. GVFS operations do not pass through the kernel as file operations and thus cannot be intercepted by the on-access scanner.
We recommend to pre-mount remote shares using a different filesystem. For example, by using the mount command or configuring /etc/fstab
