Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Indeed, an antivirus is extremely complex; it would have to have knowledge of most existing viruses (hundreds of thousands) and how they work to detect and dispose of them. Moreover, an antivirus requires the programmer to keep it up to date with the latest threats, as they are usually created to circumvent the modern antiviruses. How good at you at programming? Although judging from your question, I do not think you must be too experienced.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes i m not that experienced but i have developed alot of small management systems and i m doing my graduation in software engineering. i just want to go for something more advance and interesting. since antivirus is complex can you suggest anyother software that i can develop.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you tried working with artificial neural networks? They usually pose an exciting challenge for a long semester's project, i.e., four to five months.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could also try programming a genetic algorithm for optimization purposes: http://www.obitko.com/tutorials/geneticalgorithms/ By the way, an artificial neural network is a software model; I haven't mentioned any hardware yet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hey across a question is it possible to design a software that can help preventing hacking ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's an enormous amount of software (and hardware) breaches that fit into the vague term of "hacking." For example, you could intercept a message between a sender and a receiver and decrypt it and that would be considered hacking. Similarly, you could execute a keylogging program in the background, steal user information and that would also be considered hacking. You could also program a software that generates strings with the intention of bruteforcing password guessing and that would be considered hacking. It all depends on what you mean exactly with the word.
