  • How effective are antivirus apps for Android?

    I have an Android phone and I've noticed that there are a ton of antivirus apps for Android. I know that on a desktop/server, an antivirus must run with super-user privileges.

  • What are some of the best practices in handling computer viruses?

    I know this might sound like a broad question but I'm looking to start a good discussion here. For many SMBs, acquiring malware sometimes feels like an inevitability (despite putting in different security patches/antivirus software/etc.). I'm not looking to talk about the prevention of viruses but...

    This has been happening to me a lot lately...I'm writing an application in Delphi and after I compile it, my antivirus scanner is telling me that I'm actually creating a virus and it immediately deletes the executable again.

  • Security: How does a crypter actually work?

    I'm studying to become a security expert and I've recently come across the idea of a "crypter". I'm talking about how these crypters encrypt files (such as viruses and keyloggers) so they can bypass antivirus detection. But I'm curious on how they actually work. Can someone help me with a brief...

  • My program is being blocked by my antivirus software (AVG)

    I recently created a program that I've been working on that downloads files. It's been working fine until a user is using AVG. It seems that in order to fix the issue, AVG's "Email Protection" must be disabled. I've already tried adding either my program or the JRE to an exceptions list. It doesn't...

  • Do Windows antivirus tools use API Hooking to protect files?

    From what I understand, antiviruses hook to a file, accesses it and scan the files, and if necessary, make the file inaccessible to protect the system. Is this done via API hooking or some other methodology?
