AVG Virus Stalker

In addition to creating only one testing engine for all parts of the AVG Anti Virus System (see AVG Active Modular Core Page), Grisoft uses the introduction of AVG 6.0 to continue it's steady advancement of AV heuristics technology. AVG's Virus Stalker is an essential component of the Active Modular Core. The Virus Stalker represents more than six years of continuous development and refinement.

Grisoft was one of the first companies focused on the serious development of a method called 'heuristic analysis'. This approach is quite different from any of the standard methods of virus detection. It no longer depends solely on scanning files for known viruses listed in the program's internal database, but instead added another dimension to let the program work in the same way as would an experienced virus researcher. The program analyzes the instructions of tested objects, emulates these instructions and is able to understand what they mean.

Using heuristic analysis, the program is able to detect even unknown viruses. Because it is a virus - it must contain incorrect instructions and methods - which Heuristic Analysis can detect.

Heuristic analysis first appeared in 1993. Grisoft adopted the heuristic approach as the "core" of its anti-virus engine and has continued in its development for the past six years. The result is the best heuristic analysis engine in the world today - high-end, reliable and quick. We call it Virus Stalker.

With the extraordinary number of new viruses being developed on a daily basis, combined with the ever increasing use of the Internet, the ability to detect 'undiscovered' viruses is more essential than ever before.
