Antivirus scan suddenly takes much longer and uses a lot more CPU?

I am using Bitfender antivirus for mac, and usually, it only uses a small amount of CPU power and takes 10-15 minutes.

However, today, I started my computer, and found that the scan took nearly 50 minutes to complete, and on activity monitor, it was using 3-4 times the normal CPU,

why could this be happening?
