    Kaspersky labs seem to use much more generic signitures than heuristics.

    The proactive defence of KAV 2006 is a type of behaviour analyser / blocker.

    Heurstics are traditionally via code comparison.

    KAV detected 48% of viruses in the last AV Comparatives retrospective test (May 2005):

    Interesting the direction that KAV is headed. It will be interesting to watch how KAV users react to behaviorally-based security.
