WiseVector StopX, the solution that its official page has literally no info making potential users think twice.

For me to even attempt to understand what is potentially under the hood and changes, I had to go to the versions history.

It is however in my list of testing.

Care to show some screenshots + some insight on:
Detection
Prevention capabilities and technology
Resource usage/ I/O
system impact when handling normal tasks and when actively scanning


PS: I wish more and more solutions would stop posting this without going into details in actual changelogs:
5. Fixed other bugs.

(september fix)

There are lots of informations about WVSX in the thread of this forum, that was create before (around 2018 I recall...) than Wilders one...

I have been also testing/posting WVSX malware results in Malware Hub (also @Evjl's Rain) for months (and still use it as Second Opinion Scanner in my malware tests), and probably will do again soon to test the new version with new updates and features...
