I installed the 2.5 beta version leaked here by a user... the last results have been performed with that version, but it was not able to update in the last days, I always got an error (included yesterday test)... so I guess this beta version is not finished and stable yet... I will contact to @WiseVector about that...

Thank you very much for your ongoing testing and we have fixed some problems according to your tests.
Can WiseVector StopX update right now and what's the error in details?

Unbelievably good. I wonder what makes WV that strong and why other big corps doesn't take the same route as WV did, using machine learning.
I also have noticed that ESET and Symantec both heavily use machine learning and they catch a lot of zero day malware variants. BitDefender's "Theta" engine is doing great on VirusTotal and that's AI/ML based too.

There are likely weaknesses to this approach too, just like machine learning based image recognition can be fooled by injecting specially crafted noise into a picture. But it's definitely exciting and a great approach.
