And that posting is supposed to say what?
Differently? That's how most of the antivirus programs detecting variants. It's called Generic Variant detection. Absolutely nothing new, used in almost all up-2-date antivirus programs today. Example: IrcBot.gen or Downloader.gen
It's not supposed to say anything, I thought it was a good and interesting read about drweb antivirus databases.You say it's nothing new, but I haven't read this info on any vendors site before.We are all not AV experts so you should appreciate that.Are you having a bad Monday.
From another thread, I'd say he had a pretty rough weekend though (HP)...
There is nothing new here, as Mike stated. It just basically describes variant and heuristic detection which most AV vendors carry out to-day.
I am certainly no expert but most members here at Wilders who have read thru some of the AV threads over a period of time would be able to gather this information.
The AV database of Dr Web is not unique in this respect and recent av tests do not bring out this perceived greater detection.
Fairly interesting but nothing new. Instead of spending a lot of time on these long marketing jobs ( as with the Dr Web Myths section) I would like them to devote more time to adding more signatures to the database.
Didn t some dude from av test say dr web and nod32 having a small av database but high detection nonetheless.
debatable at the moment, but yes, drwebs database is nice and light.
Or chick sorry.
See it yourself
Dude as far as i know
