avast! CommunityIQ - How we find new computer viruses

Uploaded by Avast on 07.10.2011

This is a typical virus analyst - finding and analyzing new computer viruses
And you need hundreds of them in a normal virus lab
At AVAST, we do it differently
Imagine this lamp is you, an avast! user
Surrounded by the darkness of cyberspace
When your avast! sees something suspicious, it catches it
... and sends the little intruder - automatically and anonymously - to our virus lab for analysis
Every day we receive about 50,000 samples that are analyzed by our systems
Whatever gets confirmed as a virus goes into an update that is sent automatically to all avast! users
And because we have hundreds of millions of users
We quite don't need hundreds of analysts to keep you...
