    The submission to the cloud does not necessarily mean automatic inclusion/blocking of those files. Behind the scenes there's a lot of analysis processes going on to determine if the file is malicious or not before it is blocked. Simply having a lot of submission of the same file(s) does not change the determination. It is prioritized more or less, but you cannot "make" it malicious if it is not.

    Is there manual reverse engineering at some point or is there some automates binary analyses?

    There's both. Of course most of it is automated these days. We do maintain a % of manual to improve generic sigs, detect new techniques to improve automation , etc.

    @Pbust,


    when files are in the recycling bin, how long does it take from them to be look at good or bad and moved out?

    if they are bad do they get deleted?

    It depends on many things, such as prevalence, whether it is looked at automatically or manually, the characteristics of the file, which technology detected it, etc. With version 1.1 we are adding some advanced configuration so that the behaviour of the Recycle Bin can be fine-tuned to whatever you want.

    What one thing will make the 'free' version different from the 'Pro' Version that will be coming?

    ps - your post on Panda forum (the dat file issue) looks for Windows Vista and Windows 7: C:\Users\All Users\Panda Security\Panda Cloud Antivirus\CfgData
    Some, like me, do not have \users\all users. I have users\david, users\default, users\public

    Perhaps Panda Cloud AV should have a Default Deny mechanism like a HIPS. That way, unknown files can't run and harm your computer.

    i wouldnt mind a popup to allow or deny. maybe a remember buttom to create a database to remember unknowns.

    good idea.

    Panda just deleted coat.dlll from the Comodo leak test. The file just disappeared - it didn't even show up in the Panda "recycler". I don't like this auto "quarantine" feature. I'd like to be able to choose ignore or put a flagged file in an excluded list.

    I think it's no problem if you get a notification - but: NO notification and AUTO quarantine is really unacceptable :thumbd:

    I'm interested in testing this, I have tools though that it will most likely auto-quarantine/delete on my test box though. Can someone say if it has r/t file system monitoring? Like it scans on read/writes, maybe with selective extensions? If it has r/t and cloud I'd consider using it over avira 10 free considering it doesn't wipe my development tools and binaries transparently.

    I cannot install Panda Ca for example in D drive
