Armadito Antivirus is an open-source antivirus that protects your computers and servers from malware. It includes classical signature-based malware detection and provides innovative heuristic detection modules for binaries (MS-Windows and GNU/Linux) and for PDF documents.

This project is designed in a way which allows anyone to improve anti-malware techniques’ state of the art. For example, security experts are able to concentrate on anti-malware techniques only by developing their own modules in C language. This plugin system aims to encourage people to test and develop experimental techniques freely.

An intuitive and user-friendly interface gives access to all Armadito’s features: on-demand scanning, real-time protection, quarantine zone, threat detection journal, etc. This interface has been developed using AngularJs/HTML5/CSS3 technology. Consequently, this graphical user interface aims to be multi-platform (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X).
