Panda Security just released a new product, and this time it is free. It is a new cloud antivirus based upon their collective intelligence technology. I have used panda antivirus before and its engine is one of the fastest. Detection wise it was not the best; however any product can improve and it is worth to give it a try.
One thing though, it is not yet compatible with 64bit computers. Tell me what you think guys.
It consists of a lightweight antivirus agent that is connected in real-time to PandaLabs’ Collective Intelligence servers to protect faster against the newest malware variants while barely impacting PC performance.
[s]so we can scan the comp if we're not connected to internet? ???[/s]
yep, confirmed.need to connect to internet when scanning so it can coonects to the cloud server.
guess i can’t use it then :-
ow, i ask a question to them (using “send us your comment” right click menu). it seems the AV will simply cure or delete the infected file/malware, then what if it’s an FP?
the answer they gave me:
Please, we need you to send us the false positive file in a ZIP-password-protected attachment in order to share them with our development team.
i was just asking “what if”. haven’t got FP so far. has anyone test this AV againsts real malwares? :-TU
It sems like a good idea. Its main goal is to set and forget. it doesnt need update cause it sends exe’s to the cloud for scanning and uses the sigs they have there. But like you said if you dont have internet connected your screwed.
