Kaspersky Anti-Virus Database

Kaspersky Anti-Virus, developed by Kaspersky Lab, utilizes database files which contain details on viruses, as well as data regarding detection and removal of other forms of malicious software.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus utilizes .avc files to store useful information, such as characteristics and behavior, on recognized malware risks. When running a scan on a device, it checks all files and processes against the details in the .avc files to pinpoint and eliminate any conceivable malicious code.

Kaspersky Lab regularly updates the .avc files to make sure Kaspersky Anti-Virus is up-to-date on emerging malware threats. Generally, the antivirus program will download these updates automatically; if not, users can always manually download and install them.
