Hi,ESET has Advanced Heuristic but how advance it is?Thanks.
AFAIK Advanced Heuristic is just ESET's term on heuristic using emulator engine. maybe marcos or others can explain
Unlike static heuristics, advanced heuristics emulates the code in a virtual environment and evaluates its behavior before the code is allowed to run.
A proof on this is the lowest degradation (amount of fails) in VB100 or AVC proactive tests.
Some information about heuristics from ESET's web site:
ESET white paper, "Heuristic Analysis - Detecting Unknown Viruses" [PDF]
ESET white paper, "Understanding and Teaching Heuristics" [PDF]
ESET Threat Blog, "Heuristic Detection Techniques"
ESET Threat Blog, "What are Heuristics?"
ESET Knowledgebase Article #127, "Heuristics Explained"
There have also been some discussion of them in ESET's podcasts, if memory serves.
