    New approach to anti-malware?

    There is a new startup in the AV/AM market called Robot Genius.

    Its main product searches the Web for sites delivering drive by infections and the like.

    You can read more about the products here:

    It will be interesting to see how the market responds and whether the company survives.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    As someone who works for an AV company, that is pretty clever if it's as good as they claim. With every new technology there is an element of hype, particularly from the people who stand to make money from it. But it is certainly a novel approach and will be interesting to see if it is a success.

    In theory I guess there is nothing to stop other AV's copying the basic idea, but although the principle is quite simple it sounds like these guys have done a lot of work to flesh out their idea and develop it to this point.
