    Wrong ! They used this engine but in their beta version they use a new engine (no name however) BUT with heuristic scan ... i tried to use it in a virtual environment but it didn't work out ...

    its not really wrong. they are still using the clamav in their current version as quoted from the site:

    "Moon Secure AV is an opensource antivirus currently using the clamav engine due to fast response time and huge AV database"

    sorry starter but I have to disagree with you :D because if you read further they state : "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"
    check out the "download section" you'll find two versions : the stable (which is indeed using the clamav) and the Beta which is using the new engine ...

    To me it sounds like devs are using the ClamAV engine combined with their own heuristic eninge.

    Who knows, Give it a little time and it might be a major player in the free AV sector.

    Well, there are actually only 2 that can be used even for commercial purpose.
    MoonAV and Comodo CAVS. Others are free but limited to personal home usage only.

    No problem IMO, bigC. Seems to me that it was just an off-hand comment -- not a thread stealer.

    As to Moony's XstormX -- his comments indicate that he is more technically adept at security stuff than I had previously thought. I certainly wish that Stefan K or Inspector Clouseau/HappyBytes would comment on what he said.

    It turned into this when they started questioning usability of ClamAV powered program with funky retro GUI...
