Length:  28 pages

Anti-virus does much more than reactively detect known viruses; it proactively scans for unknown ones too. So, how do scanners really work? The aim of this paper is to reduce some of the confusion around the workings of AV technology, and to clarify what is realistic to expect from AV protection, particularly heuristic analysis.
