McAfee Stinger 188.8.131.525
McAfee Stinger detects and removes prevalent Fake Alert malware and threats identified in the “List Viruses” section of the Stinger application. While not a replacement for full fledged antivirus software, McAfee Stinger is updated multiple times a week to include detection for newer Fake Alert variants and prevalent viruses.
Stinger is a standalone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. Stinger utilizes next-generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed .DAT files, and scan performance optimizations. It detects and removes threats identified under the “List Viruses” icon in the McAfee Stinger application.
Details on new or enhanced signatures added with each McAfee Stinger build are listed in the Readme details.
Enhanced detections are those that have been modified for this release. Detections are enhanced to cover new variants, optimize performance, and correct incorrect identifications.
