Defense Components


The scan engine works together with the virus pattern file to perform the first level of detection using a process called pattern matching. Since each virus contains a unique ”signature” or string of tell-tale characters that distinguish it from any other code, Trend Micro captures inert snippets of this code in the pattern file. The engine then compares certain parts of each scanned file to patterns in the virus pattern file, searching for a match.
