I think you miss the purpose of the topic, i made it mainly for AVERAGE JOE , the kind of people that do not care of semantics. So they can grasp the concept easily. Advanced users normally dont need to read it unless by curiosity. Also i just mentioned Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, because it is closer to an AV (realtime engine, url filter and co) , i never mentioned about Combofix, Gmer, OTL, Rkill, roguekiller, and other SPECIALIZED tools , because they are just TOOLS not generalized products like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or EAM (even Emsisoft admit their product is no more a pure ild school antimalware but now an AV) If you go purely by semantics , there is no more antiviruses now, they are all antimalwares with dozen features that qualify them outside the "antivirus" label ; but i can tell with 100% chances that people will still use the word "Antivirus" whatever you say. What you trying to say is like : I say : " hey guys, cops arrested that drug dealer baron !" Then you replied: "no no they are not cops they are DEA infiltrated agents who did it" Indeed if we go by technical details you are right but does it make a difference in the understanding of my article? I dont think so. Btw, the differences are explained in page 2 and 3 of this thread, check N.nvt explanation post. Thanks.
