McAfee Stinger 126.96.36.1997
McAfee Stinger Review:
McAfee Stinger is a special tool for administrators who want to deal with viruses of various types without installing any elaborate anti-virus solution. This is especially used by ep2 developers and administrators. One of the basic advantages of using McAfee Stinger is advanced tools for virus removal and identification of virus signatures much more efficiently.
It helps administrators deal effectively with an infected system by identifying virus signatures much more easily and far better than a normal anti-virus solution. Administrator systems need to be malware and virus free all the time and advanced tools such as Stingray comes very handy. It can be easily installed depending on whether you are using a 32 bit or a 64 bit operating system and then running it on the system once in a while. They come with many intelligent features like machine learning algorithms for better detection rates, real-time behavioral analysis, rapid action and removal, complete root removal.
The latest builds include a feature called Raptor that monitors real-time behavioral patterns at the endpoint. Monitoring and analysis of these behaviors for suspicious patterns can help identify whenever there might be a chance of the system getting infected by a virus or a malware. Once this is confirmed by the Stinger, it can launch a campaign to remove this threat as soon as possible.
- McAfee Stinger employs machine learning approaches to identify patterns emerging from this monitoring data.
Using machine helps it to identify automatically changing features of the behavioral data on a time scale. Once they are identified, they can be automatically classified using a binary classifier and depending upon that classification some action might be performed.
- It performs a rootkit scan to list all the threats on the system. The current version can also detect Game Over Zeus and CryptoLocker, which were one of the most difficult to detect malware built till date.
- The Stinger application for the Windows is a 7.8 MB executable or .exe file. The user interface is very simple and minimal consisting of just three tabs for Scan, Log and Quarantine.
There is an Advanced tab that lists the settings where you can select from a given number of options which types of files must be scanned. There is also something called GTI settings that means the intensity of the scan.
It is a standalone utility and not a replacement or an alternative solution for an antivirus solution.
Changes on the new version:
Enhanced detections are those that have been modified for this release. Detections are enhanced to cover new variants, optimize performance, and correct incorrect identifications.
