Do you need a special browser in order to find the download? I see only
that one page.  So it is Panda. Aren't they the company that spams you
often, once you give them an email address, and you can't get them to
stop? Some have reported that over the years.

Re: cloud antivirus

That page includes a download button in Firefox.
On Googling the product there are several positive reviews, but it is very
new,still in beta it would seem.
I will report back after a trial run.

I saw that, a hard-to-miss green thing, but the link associated with it
goes nowhere. Notice the lack of anything in the href=""

<div class="download_div">
   <a href="" rel="#overlay" class="download aRegisterCont">
   <img id="Img_Download" class="rollover" Title="Download" ...

The same applies to that sideways "Feedback" button.

Hello BTS:

My curiosity got the best of me.  I went to one of my systems, with a
sandboxed browser, and saw that you first must give up an email address
for the license key(s).  After that, an 18.13 Mb file, called
CloudAntivirus.exe, is downloaded from:

      <hXXp://acs.pandasoftware.com/cloud/CloudAntivirus.exe>

Similarly, if the Feedback button is clicked on, you're sent to:

      <hXXp://www.cloudantivirus.com/Default.aspx?lang=eng>

A threat analysis was run with CloudAntivirus.exe using VirusTotal
yielding two hits out of 39.  VBA32 reported: "suspected of
Backdoor.XiaoBird.8 (paranoid heuristics)".  McAfee-GW-Edition reported:
"Win32.Vulnerable.gen!High (suspicious)"

 <https://www.virustotal.com/analisis/e04fdaa8f69678ed2c9b9ff51eb75631

The sparsity of information on Panda's web page fails to make it clear
how their software works with regard to a computing cloud.  If you
install their product, as a thin-client, does your system become part of
a computing cloud of Panda antivirus software?  Or, are you seemingly
protected from a malware cloud?  If neither, are you as protected as you
might be with any of their other products?

Warm regards,

Pete

Why don't you install it and tell us?

Hello:

I'm only mildly tempted.  The one under-powered system I could devote to
this, is overloaded with other good stuff I'm long-term testing.

IMO if this was good growing program, it would still be a long time
before many of us would buy into it.

As I indicated in a previous post within this thread, Panda did not show
us a stellar response when given a rather routine piece of malware.  I'm
sure that what I write makes it appear as if I don't believe in the
cloud approach and I want all to know that anything that helps us
increase the power of our arsenals is OK in my opinion.  Time will tell.

Regards,

Pete

I run Panda Activescan every month or so and they've never spammed me.

Seems to work, although it has strange navigation.

However, it now refuses to install when you have Avira for example..

It runs okay with Kaspersky IS 2009 and detects that Kaspersky is
installed. Panda released an updated version to run with IE8, which
seems to work.

Re: cloud antivirus

It has installed with Avira and has been running OK with it for a couple of
days. The Panda support people said I should get rid of Avira (they would
wouldn't they?) but I am not inclined to do so yet. however I have no
serious complaints about Panda Cloud so far. It seems almost too simple to
me, and the first scan was going to take 3 hours so I stopped it after two.
It found a trojan and I was able to delete it.
The jury is still out as far as I am concerned though.

Hello Quilly:

What might have been intriguing, is to submit the Panda detected trojan
to Virus Total for further analysis.  What's further profound is that a
much higher regarded application (AntiVir) had /not/ detected what Panda
did.

Is the /trojan/ completely deleted, or is it possibly in quarantine?  Do
you have any log entries as to how Panda identified it and by what name,
and perhaps a full pathname?

Warm regards,

Pete

Yes, I am also extremely interested in this.
Quilly, please post back.

Re: cloud antivirus

About that trojan. I am afraid I am artistic rather than scientific but my
memory is that Panda told me the string where the trojan was. It was an exe
file that I had in my utilities folder. I then just deleted it with a Delete
program that overwrites stuff about 20 times. I must say that my PC has been
faster and cleaner ever since.

Hello Quilly:

I know you may be on the steep side of the learning curve for Panda.
Other antimalware applications have a log of events.

Perhaps you could try drilling down through their menu items for one.
If that fails, try looking in their applications folder for one.

Thank you kindly,

Pete

Hello Quilly:

If it's still possible, please see if your logs show the full pathname,
temp if I remember right, and the filename.

Thank you kindly,

Sorry! I have deleted Panda and have no record. It worked, but I was less
than impressed...
