Avast's ITW virus list and real-time WildList
« on: November 03, 2004, 04:52:46 AM »
Hi

Is Avast's ITW virus list in virus database up-to-date? because the number of ITW viruses in Avast's virus database are 1274 but in the WildList page (real-time wildList) are 361. And Die Hard-4000 virus still is ITW in Avast's virus database but not in the WildList page (real-time wildList), or I miss something? so, what is the difference between both ITW virus list?

And I've noticed the slow/sluggish-move when I click and move the table in Avast's virus database (like skin GUI) even though in skinless GUI.

Thanks

Good question. :)

Well... yes, this is caused by the fact that the if a virus in the avast database is marked as "ItW" it actually means that it has been ItW.

That is, we don't remove this flag from any viruses, even if they are removed from the WildList. Does that make sense?

You mean moving the Virus Database window on the screen is slow? Or did I misunderstand you?


Thanks

Thanks for quick reply. What I mean is, when shrink or stretch inside the Virus Database window as pic below.  :)
