C:\$GetCurrent\LogsA situation when a virus won’t operate in a system, because it was programmed for other geographical area, will never happen in our tests. Readers and developers are ensured that malware which was qualified for tests will be able to seriously infect operating systems, regardless of which part of the world it comes from. Before a potentially harmful sample is qualified for tests, one of the components of a testing system checks if malicious software certainly introduces unwanted modifications. For this purpose, every virus is analyzed for several minutes. The human factor excluded from tests makes it impossible to ascertain whether, for example, malware will finish its activity after 60 seconds. We must establish some time threshold after which we stop an analysis. We are aware that there’s malicious software that can delay its launch up to several hours before it’s activated. It can also listen to connections with C&C server on an ephemeral port. There were also situations when malware was programmed to infect a specific application, or it was waiting for a website to be opened. For this reason, we took every effort to ensure that our tests are as close to reality as possible, and samples which are “unreliable” won’t be included in a test virus database. After analyzing every potentially malicious sample, logs from the activity of malware are exported to the outer part of the testing system. On the basis of the data gathered, developed algorithms decide whether a particular sample is certainly harmful. We publish part of the information from an analysis on the AVLab’s website in an accessible form for users and developers. Detailed data are shared with developers.
