1- It will improve the resource usage? I mean, you guys are taking less resource than it was in the begginning, but I believe you could make it more light, making the system runs more faster (its not just about the memory footprint, but about the general response time of the system after you execute an application).
2- How long time do you guys intend to take to add new signatures? I ask this, because you guys usually are needing 4 or 5 days to add and sometimes you guys just doesnt add… ??? even with a lot of other avs already detecting… Is it going to be improved in version 2?
3- This new version will be already able to clean true viruses, or you guys still just moving them to quarantine? Any new unpackers (like UPX, for example) were created to this new version?
Ps–> Whats the faster way to get new signatures from you guys? Sending the undetected sample by email or by the function in the quarantine system? Or doesnt matter?
1)yes it will improve the mem usage (but we won’t stop there we will continue improving it. There will be speed improvements as well
2)the signatures are usually added pretty quickly. The reason why we don’t add some is cos we don’t have some unpackers. So all our developers are busy developing unpackers at the moment. We will have around 4-6 new big unpackers launched, which will improve detection. And we will continue to add new unpackers, (there are around 30).
ps: pls send it to firstname.lastname@example.org as well. (in theory it goes to same system, but I keep an eye on this email address myself )
The first time you open Outlook Express, it have a big delay before it attempt to established a connect to pop3 server and other delay connecting to the pop3 server. After this first time, it works normally (maybe a proccess that is loaded in the first time is causing the delay? )…
You guys are going to fix it in this next release? ???
Thanks for your time,
Ps–>Melih, I have a big surprise for you (big in all aspects, specialy file size ;D). I am retrievieng my malware database with more than 1GB of malware file, when I get all back, I will send to you as I promissed!! I didnt forgot! ;D
Its more than 40.000 different malware samples (viruses, trojan, worms, dialers)
Dont worry, when I finish to get my samples back (I think 2 more days will do), I will ask for the FTP access to send to you.
Also I will send as well around 100 new trojans (bankers,downloaders,etc) samples that people sent to me in the last week. Most of them still ITW. They are all new! =-P
Oh, another thing about version 2 that I did remember:
When you do a context scan (right click over a file and asks for comodo scan a single file), it scan the memory before the file always. Making the context scan get more time than it should…
Maybe in the next version it will have an option to disable memory scan in context scan? Or maybe it could scan just the file, not doing the memory scan??
I’m probably going to load the beta either way, but out of curiosity… If I were to load the beta version, would the final release be applied overtop of it as an automatic update, or would i need to uninstall the beta and install the release version manually?
