    Hi, merry xmas for all!

    Who knows about moon secure antivirus? Fyi I downloaded yesterday and I can state this is a very light one with an incremental updating with a huge source. It’s all a real time engine. It takes worth to use it. IMHO It could be better in a short time because we cannnot stand anymore bloated antivirus as ever. This is a good reply to it! Please read the opinions which I pasted down there below. The first one from its forum, the second one from its homepage and the third one from another known forum:


    "Moon Secure Antivirus aims to be the best Free Antivirus for Windows under GPL license. It offers multiple scan engines, Net shield, Firewall, On access, on Exec scanner and rootkits preventions plus features from Commercial Antivirus applications"

    “Info About Moon Secure
    Moon Secure AV is an opensource antivirus currently using the clamav engine due to fast response time and huge AV database, however we are implementing another engine that is heuristic and will allow users to customize the engine on the fly. Unlike clam it has an enterprise level real-time scanner. It is built for windows and will run on XP and vista. It can scan portable drives and fixed drives. It is able to detect viruses, Trojans and spyware.

    Our vision is to release an enterprise level antivirus, which can be used in any windows environment.

    The aim is to provide a superior antivirus capable with competing with the market leaders and still at the same price, free!

    We aim to be part of an opensource “suite” which will allow all users to still use the environment they are comfortable with but benefit from the terrific opensource community.”
