Possible Reason For KAV 2013 English Delay

Postby DBone » Thu Feb 28, 2013 10:29 pm
I found the following info regarding the new Baidu AV ( http://sd.baidu.com/en/ ) and this might explain what is going on with KAV 2013. Looks like there are some big changes going on and we'll all just have to wait and see.

http://beta.fool.com/madhudube/2013/01/ ... 013/22021/

"Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU)

In order to compete with Qihoo's anti-virus software, Baidu announced in December 2012 that it will raise ~$1.5 billion in the form of bonds to make strategic acquisitions. It intends to acquire Kingsoft Internet Security (KIS), the third largest anti-virus software provider in China with ~150 million users. By including Kingsoft's security features in its searches, Baidu would improve the level of safety in its searches and with Kingsoft's wide product range, which includes Kingsoft Antivirus, Kingsoft Security Defender, Cheetah Browser and Kingsoft Mobile Defender, the company will be able to expand its distribution channel. Along with this KIS will also help Baidu to improve the user privacy issues which will in turn increase the traffic share.

Apart from this, I feel that online travel and videos will see an upward trend in China in future. It is expected that online travel sales will grow by ~5% next year. Baidu is all set to handle the upcoming increase with its subsidiaries Qunar, the online search engine and iQiyi, the online video website. Qunar is now the largest online travel integration website of China which integrates more than 400 online travel agencies. In addition to that, it is expected that in future mobile video will see the fastest growth with respect to data traffic and will account for ~70% of the total mobile traffic. I feel that iQiyi, the second largest online video website of the country, will be able to cope up with this increase as it was able to grow to ~28% in mobile traffic in December, 2012 from last year’s ~4% only.

Baidu currently dominates ~80% of the Chinese search revenue and traffic, but after looking at the above factors I feel that in 2013 the company is sincerely planning to increase its share in the growing market."

Baidu uses Baidu Antivirus Engine + Baidu Cloud Engine + Avira Engine  ... but i think the first both are from Kingsoft. http://www.neowin.net/news/baidu-antivirus-2013-offers-ultrafast-cloud-security-for-free

...What engine does Baidu use?

by default:  Avira Engine disabled

• Smart protection automatically selects the necessary engines
• Baidu Antivirus is compatible with 10 major safety programs (security software)

Avaliable. But Baidu can do almost thing like Tweaking, Antivirus (With Avira engine.), Patcher and more.
See http://security.baidu.co.th/ for more details.

Hi Chaps. I have the latest version installed as another layer of security  and it does not say Beta, yet i have not seen anything saying this is now final?...can anyone shed light on that please.

On another note its 15/5/2013  and i checked  via the updater that its says 13/5/13 and  is up to date?..It looks like its 2 days behind in terms of its data base...which concerns me as god knows how many malware are created and chucked on the internet in that space of time.I know it has  a behavior blocker proactive protection as well as file protection but it just seems plain daft and insecure  that its behind all the time or is that the price we pay for free software...

What do you guys think?...

Regards
Dave1234.

It's a cloud AV, so the updates are not real  important except for the optional Avira module. I think they are having server problems in certain parts of the world, not a lack of updates.

I sure like the GUI. On second thought,  I LOVE the GUI.

It's ok. I scanned with it and it found 11 false positives so it is FP happy.
