Symantec obtains anti-virus patent

Posted on Thursday, March 03 2005 @ 00:54:22 CET by


Symantec obtained a patent that allows researchers to program AV software to scan multiple areas of a file for signs of infection. This technology is used in Symantec's anti-virus product line since 1999.
The Symantec patent specifically refers to a "virus detection system (that) operates under the control of P-code to detect the presence of a virus in a file having multiple entry points," but the reach of the patent could be much more broad, said Michael Schallop, director of intellectual property at Symantec.

"What's patented is a technology to use an intermediate language to drive anti-virus functionality such as scanning and emulation," he said.
