Every time you go online, you expose information that is stored on your computer to viruses and other malware. They can infiltrate the computer while the user is downloading free software or browsing websites that are compromised by criminals. Network worms can find a way onto your computer as soon as you establish an Internet connection, even before you open a web page or download a file.

Web Anti-Virus protects incoming and outgoing data that is sent to and from the computer over the HTTP and FTP protocols and checks URLs against the list of malicious or phishing web addresses.

Web Anti-Virus intercepts and analyzes for viruses and other threats every web page or file that is accessed by the user or an application via the HTTP or FTP protocol. The following happens next:

  • If the page or file is found not to contain malicious code, the user gains immediate access to them.
  • If a user accesses a web page or file that contains malicious code, the application performs the action that is specified in the Web Anti-Virus settings.
