the question is : how a subscriber in the DACS community can scan suspicious files of the other subscribers  ??

does he have to download the malware to his PC! to scan it and send the results back to DACS ?

if not , so how can he scan it ??
An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure

That's why I like Comodo !

Is this kind of "stealing" the definitions of the other AV companies through DACS ? It sounds like that.Please, explain it better.:))

What about the false positives and real time scanning?

A user using CIS will find an unknown file....
CIS passes it to DACS component...
DACS then sends it out to all other DACS contributors....
DACS contributors scan and send the result back to the user..

A DACS contributor has a software that he/she uses to work along with their AV product.

Why is this innovation?
its NOT a cloud based system per se.. its a p2p kind of system...
If you were to run a server based system, then you would require AV companies approval. But in a p2p environment, a user scanning a file then informing the community does not require the approval of the AV company. There is nothing stopping a user from saying: hey this file is not good.

DACS will be enabled for Real time scanning.

FPs: we have a new patent on an interesting idea that we have implemented. We hope this will reduce FPs drastically.

But afterall, with CIS the FPs will only happen with "unknown" files...if a file is legit/whitelisted there will be no FP on it.
