"The best way to protect your system from getting these remote infections is don not install foreign language packs to Windows. If a malware is written in another language and your system doesn't include that language pack then it can not infect Windows."
.
"So these localized security products are very important to users in those areas because global AV's for example can not detect these local malware. If you live in the Indonesian areas, Kompas Antivirus might be an excellent option to use."


I have a question over it.As i live in india & 99% or more computer operates on english as window default lang.So in this situatation mostly local virus are written in english too so still Local AV's like Quick heal or k7 are better than Global AV's like KIS or BIS ?

Thanks
There is localized malware written in all languages but since English is used all over the world in most countries, most malware written in English is global malware. However there is also localized malware written in English that only effects small areas and never goes global.

So it is possible that localized AV's in your area could detect that local malware that the global AV's will miss.

In the USA, there is not a lot of localized malware, most of it is global.
But in Asia the story is much different. There is known localized malware in China, Russia, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, India and most other Asian countries and countries next to the European and African borders.

Most of the localized malware never get added to the global AV vendors database. Since they will run their course then be obsolete.

Enjoy!! :D

Thanks sir for your valuable info i gain from you as i always prefer global AV's compare to local AV's & before it i think European countries & russia produce 90% of virus or malware as computer comes from west but since some month ago obama claims china try to hack their database & already harm many american bussiness company then i know china is also in race.I feel safe on the web now as in your list india is last position :)

Yes it is, Russia is so large that it covers two continents.
Actually more then half of Asia is Russia.
Extends across the whole of northern Asia and much of Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms.

Russia is often called the Eurasian country.

Enjoy!! :D

Kompas AntiVirus AntiVirus programmers prefer to develop Real Time with hook process. Developing Integration with Clamav may be delayed.
