Trend antivirus not updating

Is it just me, or do too many antivirus product names start with the letters A and V?

If any company can stake a claim to those two letters, it's Avira, founded in way back in 1986.

Quick scan and full scan are present in the list, naturally.

Other choices include scanning all local drives, examining just local hard disks, checking for active malware, and scanning the Documents folder.

The other vulnerability occurs in the stco atom where by providing an invalid index, an attacker can write data outside of an allocated heap buffer.

These advisories are being released in accordance with the Zero Day Initiative’s Disclosure Policy for when a vendor does not issue a security patch for a disclosed vulnerability.

And because Apple is no longer providing security updates for Quick Time on Windows, these vulnerabilities are never going to be patched.

For example, a repeat scan with AVG Anti Virus Free finished in just one minute. Don't be fooled by the progress bar, as it runs to 100 percent multiple times during a scan.

Most antivirus products offer a full system scan and a quick scan that focuses on active malware and commonly infected locations.

That is the only sure way to be protected against all current and future vulnerabilities in the product now that Apple is no longer providing security updates for it.
