Extremely small and ultra fast malware scanner
The basic idea behind MalAware was to create build the smallest possible (1 mb) and the fastest possible malware scanner (scan ~1 min) that will only provide an indication of whether a PC is infected with malware or not.
Nonetheless, it would also need to be able to make use of the entire Emsi Software technology that contains more than 3 million known entries. Not an easy task – but our developers have found ways and means to meet these seemingly impossible combinable requirements. By combining a strongly limited version of the signature database of known malware paths with a cloud based scan of all active processes, MalAware achieves a similar accuracy as a-squared Anti-Malware.
If it detects that your PC is infected, the second step is to download the big a-squared Anti-Malware package, to remove the malware and protect the PC against new infections.
· During scan approx. 50 MB free RAM required. We suggest to use it on computers with at least 512 MB RAM, best would be 1 GB RAM.
