Bloodhound and Heuristics
Back with one of my questions again!!
I was wondering about a few things, in this case, Bloodhound and Heuristics.
firstly, is there a difference? because, Norton uses bloodhound DEFINITIONS - these are generic. yet we can set the HEURISTIC detection of Norton scans in settings. so, are we infact setting the sensitivity of the definitions themselves? Or is there an entirely separate part of Norton that has Heuristics separate to those found in these definitions?
then I would like to ask... how is it that the setting effects the Heuristics? In terms of programming, does it "comment out" certain code? use less algorithms? give files "second chances"? or what?
Maybe a bit mind boggling!! and I bet some of the above answers would be giving away some Symantec secrets!! Ah well :-)
