    ok ...

    cause many many people ask i decided to create a special thread ;o). I will try to give a little report daily:
    The neural network ANTS uses to detect unknown malware is trained. First tests showed a detectionrate of about 70% about my whole database.

    I also started to convert the old databases into the new format. ANTS 3.0 detects at the moment:


    7687 backdoors (including clients + server editors)
    411 batch worms
    403 VCKs
    119 flooder
    585 irc worms
    3381 I-Worms
    21 JAVA malware
    236 JavaScript malware
    114 nuker
    6554 trojans
    88 trojan downloader
    534 trojan dropper
    8 trojan notifier
    689 vbs malware
    199834 dialer
    32304 viruses


    Release candidate seems to be released at 14.08.2002 :eek:).

    See you tomorrow ;o).

    changed the database format and some parts of the scan routine to improve the detection of binded trojans and backdoors. A few new unpackingmodules for neolite and wwpack are added, too.

    "Release candidate seems to be released at 14.08.2002 :eek:)."

    I am assuming from this post some of the people that signed up to Beta test ANTS 3.0 are allready doing so?

    Some of them got some parts to test - but nobody got a COMPLETE version.

    Adieu, Andreas

    I signed up for Beta testing quite some time ago but did not receive any reply. Are only selected people allowed to Beta test?

    All are allowed.

    Andreas - If you have parts of it that are ready-to-go, why hasn't it already been automatically sent to the people who requested to take part in the beta-test? (I was on that list, too, BTW).

    you described to a test of the COMPLETE ants 3.0 professional package (rc 1).

    quote:
    Ja, ich möchte mich unverbindlich zum kostenlosen ANTS 3.0 Release Candidate 1 und ANTS 3.0 lite Betatest anmelden.

    "Yes, i want to take part on the free ANTS 3.0 Release Candidate 1 test"

    :eek:)

    I will translate both - the updater and the scanner and send you a link ;o).

    Hi just ran a scan on a XP home and also on XP pro system with the Beta scan of ANTS3 and found this C:\WINDOWS\system32\netsetup.exe - Found: I-Worm.Lynder
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wextract.exe - Found: I-Worm.Lynder. Looks like a false reading. Does any one know this Worm? I have not removed them since TDS3 and Wormguard3 and NOD32 find no problems. Just thought I'd let others know :D . I know it's beta so it's just for testing looks good to me. :p

    Hi,
    That was not a complaint. Will you be able to select more than one drive to be scanned. Oh thanks for the fast reply :D :D

    Its not complete. Its only a beta of the engine ;o).

    The complete scan module with heuristics and unpacking and virus scanner will be released as a beta soon (and yes, you can choose more then one drive/folder).

    Okay, got mine, too (finally got caught up!), and, after some initial weirdness (I didn't get the 'if5scan.dll' file the first go-around, for some reason, plus I had to dump the existing if5 file in the 'Signaturen' folder and re-d/l that since the first one gave me all the bad hits, too), I got a clean scan in five minutes flat that checked 21,846 files on 'C' and 'D' drive (had to scan them separately).

    That's actually kind of low on the file count, though. The Cleaner checked 31,658 last time and Tauscan checked 83,806 (supposedly). I did have 'Scan the process memory' checked - would it have checked more or less if I hadn't checked it? Pete
