Antivirus Software Overview

What is Antivirus Software?

Antivirus software is a program or set of programs that prevents, searches for, detects, and removes software viruses, and other malicious software.

As the threats multiply and new viruses are created, virus software tools have to be constantly updated to keep ahead of new malware threats.

The threat has expanded greatly beyond just computer viruses. There is now a large number of different types of malware. This includes browser hijackers, ransomware, trojan horses, worms, adware and spyware, and other threats like spam and phishing attacks.

How Threat Detection Works

There are several different methods that an antivirus engine uses to detect threats, including:
  • Signature-based detection where a threat is compared to a database of known malware signature
  • Heuristic detection, based on analysis of characteristics often used in malware
  • Sandbox detection
  • Data mining approaches
Most tools function in a similar manner, by scanning files or directories for malware or malicious patterns. Scans can be scheduled and specific files can be initiated at will. Antivirus tools also remove any malicious code and clean up anything that requires attention after the virus has been removed.
