Cloud antivirus

Hi Guys, I was reading today that Panda has a cloud antivirus.

  1. Can anyone explain what a cloud antivirus
  2. I was also reading that one of the linux os is based on cloud technology.
  3. Is this cloud stuff good and if it is, will Comodo look at this in the furture.

^Review of panda cloud AV… Remember this is a BETA so there are probably bugs.

Basicaly… Cloud Av’s work like this…
CloudAV notices application.exe is going to run, CloudAV sends up info about this program into “the cloud” and the cloud then sends back info to CloudAV on how it should handle this application.

For some interesting information on ‘cloud computing’

In my opinion cloud AV is a gimmick, nothing more.
