    I have read that you plan to add voodooAI to xvirus. Do you have an estimate date for this?

    Is xvirus based on another commerical engine or everything is xvirus tech?
    For example Zemana use commercial engines through metadefender/metascan

    The engine is Xvirus tech. About voodooAI, I'll have to test it first before implementing and releasing to public. (it should take a while)

    If you add VooDooAI, I think your SW will be really great :)
    I have tried it a little and I really like the behavior blocker and the startup monitor :)
    What about making it cloud-only instead of downloading a local signature database?

    I'm thiking in making a option for that so you can choose between local signatures or cloud :)

    Great :)
    Even as it is now, I think Xvirus anti-malware can be a good complement to VooDooShield:
    • it uses its own engine, so it adds another opinion because it isn't part of VirusTotal check
    • it adds startup monitor and behavior blocker, extra layers in case of false negatives from VooDooShield
    Just a couple of questions:
    1. do you plan to release a x64 version?
    2. does it have a self-defense against malware trying to terminate it?

    1. Xvirus is compatible with x64 computers. I don't know what you mean.

    2. I'm also working on self defense for the next version. The current version does not have any kind of self protection.

    i mean, it installs on program files x86, so i think it's based on a x86 architecture

    Yes, if you were asking if there will be a dedicated x64 version, there are no plans for it. But x86 is compatible with x64 and there are no performance gains in a program like Xvirus on making a dedicated x64 version.

    It doesn't matter if there isn't a separate x64 version since there are no limitations from the x86 version on x64 systems; Xvirus Anti-Malware doesn't need to inject DLLs into external processes or load kernel-mode device drivers and the such (meaning a cleaner trace on your system and less potential problems), so it's fine. You won't experience random BSoD crashes or program crashes due to Xvirus AM.

    I like it. :)

    I don't get it, how will this be integrated, and why would Dan allow other security tools use this tech?

    What behavior does it monitor? If I recall, it was very basic.

    I am thinking he will license it to be used, not free.
