How can you locate and destroy ALL the maliciousness hiding in the sleeping jungles of your computer?
In particular, the extra nasty maliciousness that’s never ever been seen before, which also happens to have a mega-high malevolent-IQ (and is often state sponsored)?
Easy. The answer’s simple: you can’t.
Well, you can at least have a good go at it; but to find the proverbial black malware cat in a pitch black room you need a handful of top-notch pros to do the task manually: expensive. But to do it automatically with a boxed antivirus product – that’s a whole different matter altogether: you normally just get as far as getting on to the scent of super sophisticated infections, but that’s about it. That is, at least, using the old-school AV approach that uses classic antivirus signatures and file scanners.
So what’s the solution?
Again, simple: put some mega brains to hard work – to automate sophisticated-infection seek-and-destroy functions in an AV product.
