AstaroOS: Antivirus Logging and Engine Details
It would be great if we could have a antivirus log as well the ability to view the current definitions loaded for both engines as well the ability to start/stop them
Sounds like a great idea. It would give me just a little more information when trying to provide a secure environment.

More Information about installed Patter are very useful. Size of the pattern and used signatures are good information.
I think its a good idea. It might also tell you if a machine is continually trying to download an unknown payload....

Well for a start having a antivirus log under the logging tab can provide information such as:
-which site was infected by spyware/phising etc
Having the ability to check the current definitions for each engine allows the user to search within the antivirus's website for specific information (pattern x.x.x.x includes y.x signature). At the moment definition number 7545 is not useful at all.(no info are provided with regards to current signatures)
You are right maybe start/stop functionality is a lot of work but I don't think that the rest are difficult to implement

Wingman, that sounds like a full-time job! What problem would that solve?
