KAV protection question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I noticed in the KAV & KIS 2006 beta that there is some extra anti virus real time scanning features most noticeably is the http real time scanning feature which does not appear to be a part of any of the KAV 5 anti virus programs. I have run NOD32 and noticed too that it has this http scanning feature known also as IMON. Does KAV 5 provide the same protection without the http scanner or is it a less robust program without it? I would really appreciate if some experts would clarify what the different features do in both KAV 5 and KAV 2006 beta. I feel as if KAV 5 is somehow obsolete without the http real time scanning feature. Thanks in advance

KAV5 does not do http scanning. Http scanning in KAV6 and NOD32 and others scans the data received to your browser / other internet application before it is processed by those applications. KAV5 scans all disk activity, so it scans a little later.

KAV5 is by no means obsolete. Http scanning is just a extra defense line, to try to stop malware from being downloaded. :)

the most important new future in the new version 2006 (kav and kis) is the new proactive defense.

 

the idea about HTTP scanning is similar to the idea of the email scanner. basicly both of them are not really needed since the normal file monitor will be able to catch all malware before they run on the system. the biggest difference of both this technologies over the old/standard file monitor is that both of them are able to scan and detect malware before it is downloaded to the local disk and this makes the level of protection a bit higher.
