  • What is Cloud Scan?open layer
    The Cloud Scan is a function that can quickly respond to the new malwares by querying apps and files in the user’s smartphone to the cloud server in real time.
    In order to perform scanning with the latest DB using the previous scanning function, separated DB update was needed.
    Additionally, it was difficult to deal with the new malicious apps when scanning with the old DB.
    After the cloud scan function is added, you can scan with the latest DB through real-time inquiry even if you did not update DB. Therefore, you can deal with the new malicious threats quickly.
    Also, since the default option of the cloud scan is set to work only with Wi-Fi, you can use it without worrying about data consumption unless you change the default setting.

  • A normal app is marked as "caution" on ALYac Android.open layer
    AThe “Caution” rating of ALYac Android
    The apps we rate as “caution” are different from “dangerous” labeled as “malware”. The “caution” rating is used for informing users that the permission information or credibility score of the developer is low, therefore needs user’s confirmation.

    The criteria of the “caution” app are as follows.
    1. The number of app downloads and user ratings do not reach our standard
    2. Cannot determine the app rating due to lack of developer’s information
    3. The app uses too many permissions with potential security threats

    It may difficult to get a high score when first release of the app, because user reputation such as the number of downloads and user ratings should reach our standard.
    Therefore, we upgrade the app's grade to ‘safe’ after ALYac Android Analysis team manually analysis the app to confirm stability of it.
    If a normal app is marked as ‘caution’, please send email to m_alyac@estsecurity.com including [1. Application name, 2. Package name, 3. File size]. We will check it and reply back to you as soon as possible.
