I've posted this as a, just for your information ! I havn't tried it. It's from Iran, so no political remarks etc would be allowed on here. Due to the fact it is from Iran though, it "might" be more alert etc to .GOV etc malware from outside Iran ?

If anybody tests it, please post with your findings etc.

Iranian engineers have managed to develop an antivirus which can compete with foreign rivals, the Mehr News Agency reported.

The Padvish antivirus is also an anti-malware which can protect computer networks.

The software is being used in a number of organizations and will be offered to home users in the near future.

The Islamic republic has been a target of several major cyber attacks in recent years.

In 2010, Iran's industrial and nuclear computer systems were attacked by the Stuxnet worm.

The worm was a malware designed to infect computers using Siemens Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) - a control system favoured by industries that manage water supplies, oil rigs and power plants.

Since then Iranian officials have stated that the country will be working on strengthening country's online security.

Not long ago, Iran announced that it has prohibited import of foreign computer security software. Iran's Information and Communications Technology Ministry said that Iran will rely on its own software, made by local developers.

According to the Ministry, domestic security programs have been improving, and Iran will use them, instead of foreign security software, which cannot be trusted.
