HTTP Scanner?


CAVS will have a HTTP Scanner?
If yes, when?



I think this has been discussed before, and the consensus seemed to be that it may not be necessary, or would add bloat.

Personally, I do feel it would make a good addition.


Hi VC,

Just to add, here is the link to a thread discussing avast! webshield and the addition of http scanning to comodo antivirus.,1361.0.html


Hi Mike,

Sorry for the delay reply… :frowning:

Thanks for your information :wink:

No problem. :wink: Hope the information helps.


AFAIK webshield scans internet files locally on your pc not the actual sites server, then deletes it if a trojan etc is found, before IE reads it. I saw this explanation in the Avast forums once by one of the techys.
