Next-Generation Malware Removal

Meet Nexgen, our Malware Scanner component of Quick Dagger. We’ve designed an algorithm for detecting and destroying malware. Without definitions. Without someone else’s engine. Without insanely high false positives. Within our algorithm is a complex scoring system on a sliding scale that considers signs and behavior that indicate goodware and malware. Due to the very design of malware, and it’s purpose, evading detection from Nexgen is very difficult.

Easy to understand results list: Whether you’re an end-user concerned about security, or a technician cleaning up malware off client machines, we all agree that no one likes to sift through results looking for the needle in the haystack. At a glance, thanks to our color coding and scoring algorithm, you can immediately determine the presence of a malware infection.

A score of 4.5 (blue) indicates some signs of maliciousness of that file but it’s a coin flip—50%. Files scored at 5-6 (ORANGE), malicious confidence is higher, and there are good indicators to support this file being malicious. A score of 8-11 (RED) means without a doubt this file looks to be malware. Finally, any files scored 12 or higher receive PURPLE. Any files marked RED or PURPLE should be looked at carefully, as most of the time, on client machines, they are sure indicators of an infection.

Intelligent Diagnostic Data

Built from the passion that’s evolved Nexgen, our goal is to also provide useful PC diagnostic information for IT professionals. We’re only at the beginnings, but the idea is spotting abnormality. The more you run Quick Dagger, the more accurate it is at making recommendations such as OS corruption that needs attention, failing hardware, various Windows indications. We’re looking for feedback!
