    Thanks Lomax.
    Just went to check my BAV and it had already auto updated to the new version.
    While here, just to say I asked BAidu when they would arrange to get BAV recognised in Windows action centre and this is their reply.

    Baidu.......

    If they take care of the above and add web protection they'll have one great little antivirus on their hands.

    I've went through a few of antiviruses today (BitDefender Free, 360 IS, AVG Antivirus Free) and Baidu Antivirus with tweaked settings is performing very nicely. Real smooth operation on my system.

    Revision here. I just tried a malware packet supplied by Spywar over at Malwaretips (dated 9-7-13) that contained 114 items. I scanned it with Baidu Antivirus 3.6.1.41473. Of the 114 items it missed 39 for a detection rate of 66%...:ouch: .

    Later...

    Hi Trespasser,
    66%, that's not so good, which is a little puzzling considering it has the latest Avira sigs plus the 'cloud' detection.
    I wonder what's going on there ?
    Do you have Avira engine 'ticked' for real time protection ? ( I believe the default is off) and what setting for the Baidu engine ? ( I have mine on normal).

    Thanks

    In the test he was talking about, it was all 0-day samples, so it's rare to see high detection rate for these packs.

    Of the same pack, while Baidu left 39 files behind, others did better (but not so much to call Baidu disappointing), Avira leaving 33, Bitdefender 36 (both a few hours prior).

    and it seems that it was just on-demand scanning. would be interesting what happens if he try to run the last 39 files. How react Baidu and will the system be infected?

    Exactly. I don't currently have a setup available to test run these files, if I did I'd share the results. But on CLT it's on par with Qihu (when the internet is on, that is. When it's off, Qihu is partially off too and loses).

    It was, I think it's their poor English that confuses things. They added an explorer right click menu 'scan with cloud' on the last update. So I wonder if it's an update on that.

    Does Baidu stop malware in installers? I recently installed an open source product from sourceforge, unfortunately it was quite sneaky and installed OpenCandy :mad:

    I only noticed it when all my toolbars changed and I got shortcuts for games on the desktop. Trying to clean it with Baidu only removed a few entries in %appdata%\roaming\opencandy. I had to run MalwareBytes to remove most of it, but am still not sure its gone.

    OpenCandy is no malware. It is more like adware or PUP (Potential unwanted...). Not sure whether Baidu detect software like this.

    I have been testing baidu AV lengthy and it seems very powerful compare to all those I had before. I have been getting many detection warning and malware blocking then I had with 360IS, AVG, CIS, etc. and others. I am very impressed. Never I have seen so many REAL detection and blocking in any AVs.

    I think if baidu adds a light firewall with hips and or sandbox, then it would be the perfect security suite.

    I don't want to get into discussions about what would be better for Baidu, as I prefer it as it is. Adding a whole load of other stuff would just bog it down and it would become much heavier.
    Windows and your router already have firewalls. Baidu already has a process running called BhipsSvc.exe classified as Baidu antivirus hips service, added earlier.

    (2013-2-26) Baidu Antivirus 3.0.1.21514
    ADDED
    Integrate Baidu Antivirus Engine, Baidu Cloud Security Engine, Avira Antivirus Engine
    Added the File System Protection feature
    Added the HIPS feature

    I'm glad your testing of it has proved it to be worthwhile keeping.

    great to have a hip. I mean by a light firewall addition because windows and standard router firewall does not offer protection from hidden network usage or internet access by some apps. For examples I have a used windows 7 firewall with my d-link router and baidu antivirus and no warning of any sneaking internet access reported, but when I tested private firewall, it showed me warning of of un-wanted network access by some programs and I was able to block them.

    So you see I think a light robust firewall would be a great addition to baidu antivirus as a suite that can detect all internet and network accesses by any app without user knowledge.

    SO in this matter windows firewall fails to protects and so does baidu AV fails to stop.

    Also perhaps baidu an offer this as a 2 programs. one the current free av and another free security suite with a firewall and a sandbox and let user decide which to download.

    Considering that BAV flagged 12 malicious file downloads as "safe" on a test machine, I`m not surprised it did not detect open candy.

    its not surprising that Baidu not detect files that they dont know while downloading. That is normally, no vendor detect files that they dont know. interesting would just be what happens if u run this files on ur Testmachine?

    But it would be better if they change the "safe file pop up" for unknown files. If they dont know a file, then it would be better if they make an "unknown file Pop up" ... they have the same problem with their cloud scanner ... u can see here: http://forum.antivirus.baidu.com/bbs/topic/100461/1/
