    Is Prevx a cloud-based scanner, or a behavioral scanner? I've read things suggesting it could be either one.

    EDIT: Also, will this recent false-positive incident affect Hitman Pro users, since it uses Prevx?

    It's both. It monitors behaviour on the PC then sends the results to the cloud for further analysis and classification. At least that's my understanding of how it works.

    pegr is correct :) And the FPs shouldn't affect Hitman Pro users (and they are fixed now as well).
