Many people believe that:

  • Linux and its software are impregnable to infection due to its perfect design and open-source nature.
  • Malware can get on a machine only through user carelessness and negligence.

This is a fallacy! And such attitudes lead to unprotected machines becoming uncontrollable and turning into safe havens for malware.


  • Constant monitoring of all objects at risk of infection—removable media, email, files and directories, including packaged and archived data
  • Protects against unknown threats using the improved non-signature detection technology Origins Tracing™ and an intelligent heuristic analyzer.
  • With the unique FLY-CODE™ technology at its disposal, Dr.Web detects and removes malware disguised with unknown packers

Only proprietary anti-virus technologies

All rights to Dr.Web technologies are reserved by Doctor Web. Doctor Web is one of the few anti-virus vendors in the world to have its own technologies to detect and cure malware, an anti-virus laboratory, and a global virus monitoring service that collects malware samples all over the Internet. This allows the lab to respond rapidly to new threats, especially those of Russian origin.

Dr.Web anti-virus software allows our customers to effectively withstand any threats, even those not yet known.
