Cylance Smart Antivirus only scans Portable Executable Files (PE), such as .exe, .dll etc.
Cylance Smart Antivirus does not do a traditional background threat detection, and will only scan active and opened files and processes. If a file on a secondary drive like an external hard drive is opened/copied/moved, this will trigger a process attached to the file at while point the Cylance Smart Antivirus Agent would scan it.
WS- (quotes do not seem to be working)- "Did you run those Cylance tests on a fully patched system?"
Yes- but as I know the malware intimately, none of the 3 use any Windows vulnerabilities to work. Actually in my malware Zoo I rate my Worms on a degree of difficulty (to detect)- from 1 to 5, 1 being the nastiest. The Worms I used were of the 3rd degree, not something even Ophelia would bother to code. The Zombie Bot also was not anything special.
Duotone- A USB Worm would slice through Cylance Smart AV like a Knife through soft butter. The reason I used Worms in this test is if you saw any of my 2nd opinion scanners vs Worms videos, a Home user that uses C Smart AV and does a scan with Malwarebytes or HMP may be infected and not know it. This is why comments like "I've been using this product all year and never had an infection" are depressing to me...
ps- Oh Yeah- the song was a cover by Tina Dico. Thought I needed something subversive for this one.
3 threads, one locked, 20+ pages, half-dozen malware tests, one video... All that to demonstrate what some of us knew from the start: cylance's "very-much-averageness and overhype...And the Cylance hype bubble burst. This is why I said Cylance is just another Anti-Virus and one guy got triggered by it Thank you CS
I've never had the honor of looking into Invincea X but it would definitely be an interesting spectate. Doesn't SOPHOS own it though? If I remember correctly, it's by the same company that Sandboxie was from, but then SOPHOS bought that company and starting implementing the technology into their own services whilst using their own resources to improve it.I would love to see how the Invincea X compares to cylance. Seems like cylance does not train their model well at all. Thanks for the post sis!
Did you mean my post? I'm very sorry if you did, I wasn't trying to come off as a Cylance fan. I think they are mediocre, not any better than the other fish in the sea, but definitely not the worst.Cylance is just another Anti-Virus and one guy got triggered by it
