I installed the program, the interface is simple, I like it very much. When will ransomware protection and content control be added ? Currently inactive . Isn't this antivirus program completely different from zemana protection?

Yes, we're using ClamAV scanning engine, databases are our own we combine our RT and CloudScan engine.
Also, we have several Yara rules in the pipeline waiting for integration with VT and other collaborative technologies.

This is what I noticed, hence my surprise.
I have seen your engine.
I'll make a report tonight or tomorrow, because a lot of things are wrong for the moment

Currently, we're mostly focused on these two things:
1. Releasing a rudimentary stable version of WAV
2. Improving detection ratio

We combine a lot of different technologies in order to get there:
- Opensource Clam AV for scan
- Our own virus databases + various databases from other collaborative sources
- Different set of pipelines and Yara Rules for VT collaboration
- We have ransomware protection + content control modules ready but want to have a stable WAV release first and then slowly work on feature development
- etc.

Thanks @marciocruz , please do report anything you find that you consider it's important for us at this stage.
So far is working ok,the biggest issue so far, is the detection rate, but since it uses clamav (is not that good as we all know) and your own engine ( new so is normal not be that good). otherwise is doing ok. i will use it on my "main" machine, so i will let u know if someting else "pops up", do u want us to the send the samples to you u? or at this point there is no need?
