    So by what approach does Avira - AntiDrive-By work ?

    1) Is AntiDrive-By mean using the Webshield component ?

    2) How does AntiDrive-By work ?

    ... I it just a real-time scan when ever a file is created on the hard drive by a "drive by download" ?

    -- OR --

    ... Is it looking for scripting exploits in the webpage that can cause a slient drive by download ?

    Yes, although it does appear to be a "separate" feature if you glance at their website.

    Perhaps it's some additional "technology" added that works in conjunction with the web guard. I don't remember seeing mention of it a year ago when they had the web guard alone....

    So this feature will be in the Premium version? So what's the timetable for a final release of version 9?
