Help building scan engine

19 posts in this topic

Hello. Im kind of new at working with auto it 3 and i was wondering if there was a way to build an auto it program that will scan your computer while checking it against a virus pattern file. Im working on an antivirus progect and i was wondering if it is possible and if it is, could i get an example of what the script would look like?

thx all

Few reasons this won't work.

1.AutoIt is just not the language to write an AntiVirus

2. I doubt if AutoIt can read a file and inside or cache or other stuff for a virus pattern

3. I don't see Virus Pattern are available anywhere

4. You cannot quarantine any virus as written in AutoIt.

Correct me if i am wrong.

I agree. You need to use something with driver level access.

Oh, could you please be so kind and tell us more about the pattern file and the antivirus project?

AutoIt doesn't have Ring 0 access.

File scanner doesn't need that.

A simple file scanner written in an interpreted language will be nowhere near as efficient as a native executable running on its own.

Why can't you just download a free scanner? There are tons of great scanners all over the internet.

I know, but i would love to learn to make them myself. I think its really cool stuff and it would be nice to be able to design one. Ive allready created an antivirus that uses sysclean, a scan engion created by trend micro, but I would like to be able to build my own scan engion.

The most important question is, where are you going to get the database of virus signatures from?

Building a real virus scan engine takes much more skill maybe included MASM, just go look for TUT on internet..It's easy to find...

Tutorial

Edit: There won't be a tut on building virus scan engine but there will be tut for ASM and C++.
