Beijing Jiangmin New Science & Technology Company Ltd., China's leading anti-computer virus company, announced on March 8th that it has developed a new technology to block Trojan Horse viruses.
According to computer virus specialists, the technology is a significant breakthrough for the protection of computer users from Trojan Horses viruses. In addition, the technology can monitor most common viruses and provide the user with advance warning.
The software's greatest advance is that it can pick out key values that have been added to the user's operating system registry and set up an independent data resource to record key viral values. While monitoring all registry-modifying behaviors, the software automatically compares the behavior with data resource records and blocks corresponding viral actions. As for behaviors that are not related to the data resource, the software notifies the user. Thus, the user can decide whether or not to prevent the registry modification.
Insiders said that the introduction of this technology has brought China its first anti-virus product based on the technology of blocking viral behaviors. Similar technologies were introduced in the late 1980s. However, due to performance issues, they have not been put to use until now.
