McAfee Stinger 12 is a standalone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but a specialized tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with infected system.
McAfee Stinger now includes Real Protect. It is a real-time behavior detection technology that monitors suspicious activity on an endpoint.
Real Protect leverages machine learning and automated behavioral based classification in the cloud to detect zero-day malware in real-time.
McAfee Stinger utilizes next-generation scan engine technology. That includes process scanning, digitally signed .DAT files, and scan performance optimizations. It detects and removes threats identified under the “List Viruses” icon in the application.
New or enhanced signatures added with each McAfee Stinger build. You can read about that 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.
