DescriptionHornet AntiVirus Free offers the ultimate protection against viruses, trojans, spyware, keyloggers, potentially malicious USSD / MMI codes and other malicious applications. The used "IN-ACTIVATOR AntiVirus Engine" provides solid malware detection and guarantees a maximum of protection. The integrated real-time protection is checking the applications already when they are installed - and alerts you immediately if malicious code is detected. A clearly arranged list of your app´s permissions shows if your "flashlight app" has fun sending sms messages - or if your new "puzzle game" is interested in your GPS location and private data.
This application is free of charge, does not contain advertising and does not ask for dubious permissions, when it is installed.
NEW: Hornet AntiVirus Free includes detection of apps that are vulnerable due to the heartbleed bug (CVE-2014-0160) and also checks your Android OS. You do not have to install an other app to stay safe!
- Use of heuristic methods to detect new malware variants.
- Detection of code obfuscation.
- Detection of apps using offensive advertising (e.g. AirPush, LeadBolt, Moolah Media).
- The combination of different real-time modules also protects you while you surf the Internet.
- Hornet AntiVirus makes online banking much more secure.
- Includes protection against potentially malicious USSD codes (USSD Filter / USSD Blocker).
- Actualization of malware-definitions and of the program at regular intervals using the update functionality of "Google Play". (Please activate "Allow automatic updating" for Hornet AntiVirus.)

- Notification Icon (optional) - You can switch on the status icon in the settings menu.

Hornet AntiVirus Free - Security. Made in Germany.
The so-called heartbleed bug (CVE-2014-060) is a bug in the OpenSSL implementation, which is particularly common on devices running Android Version 4.1.1. A missing check allows an attacker to read parts from memory and gain knowledge about e.g. usernames, passwords etc.. Hornet AntiVirus checks both - your operating system and all installed apps for this vulnerability and warns you if the heartbleed bug is found. If your OS is affected, you should check if the device manufacturer provides an update for your Android device. If an app is affected, you should ask for an update for this application.
