    Yes, all Kaspersky versions (from v5 at least) have generic signatures.

    Generic signatures end with .gen
    Emulator detections begin with HEUR:

    Generic signatures are independent of program version.

    Well, i don't know any antivirus that doesn't use them these days.
    Comodo maybe, though i don't understand them exactly. They have signatures ending with .gen but they're saying they'll implement new "family" detections which are in my terminology generic detections.

    Comodo already have family signatures, but there is room for improvement and the Comodo AV labs have innovated a neat trick, which requires a new format, this and family signatures will be in next CIS version.

    Cheers,
