herdProtect
 
It’s quite common these days to have a basic protection such as an anti-virus installed on our PC or even a Smartphone as the first layer of defense. Some of us might even have a firewall installed. Few other may have another layer of defense installed in the form of anti-malware, commonly known as second layer of defense.
 
While traditional first layer of defense, aka anti-virus, are not that good enough to protect us 24x7- as the virus definitions need to be update before it can catch the infection. So it’s a bit slow on defense. Firewalls on the other hand are very static in nature and can just manage the network traffic in-and-out of your system. So again not so effective. So now comes the role of second layer of defense, aka anti-malware.
 
What is herdProtect?
herdProtect is a second line of defense malware, an Anti-Malware Scanner, powered by 68 anti-malware engines in the cloud. Its a 'herd' of multiple engines that guarantees the widest defense coverage and the earliest possible detection ever feasible.
Since no single anti-malware program is perfect 100% of the time against malware, herdProtect’s multi-engines leaves no room for you to worry.
Below is pictorial representation of the kind of protection you get on the right with  herdProtect’s engines compared to a single one.

How does herdProtect work?
herdProtect Anti-Malware Scanner comes as a free Windows desktop program available for windows 8/7/Vista/XP (32 and 64 bit). It’s quite fast to scan and is light weight on your system resources.
herdProtect takes a snapshot of all the 'active' files on a user’s system. After stripping any personally identifiable details these files are anonymous and securely sent to the herdProtect servers to be analyzed. Post analysis, the reports are sent back to the user and displayed.
 
Therefore, having 68 anti-malware scanners at your disposal will make sure that no known threat goes under your nose undetected. So why wait any further. Head over to the link below and download a copy of scanner get started.

PS: As herdProtect is in Beta stage it will not remove any malware, but will identify all malware(s) on your system as well as provide you detailed information.

.. Karma!

With "68 anti-malware engines" it must be "heavy" (if that is true?)...

D., did you try it?

Yeah, it actually works pretty good. Only found a few things, and told me intelligently what was wrong. Installers with toolbars, stuff like that. Also a rather large (20 to 30) items it did not recognize. O&O services, Paragon servcies, stuff like that :)

All in all - might be interesting to install on a PC  you suspect you cleaned, but you're not quite sure yet...

Almost all "suspicious" files are well known, for example: McAfee's, Microsoft's even Google's files are flagged by some "unknown" Antiviruses: Bkav, The Hacker, Reason, CMC, ByteHero, Ikarus etc.

I guess this has to rely on the level of Detection Convergence? :p
What we can see here is that some unknown products have a very bad database/detection algorithms :p
