Panda Software Thursday announced the release of Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro, a cloud-based antivirus service, including support. The security company also updated its free Panda Cloud Antivirus software, first introduced in April 2009, which offers a subset of the Pro version’s features.
New features in both versions include a dynamic behavioral blocker which helps spot and block malware — even if it’s not previously been seen — as well as targeted attacks. The Pro version also adds automatic upgrades, automatic scans of USB drives, and hard drives to ensure they can’t introduce a virus even if the machine is offline. Multilingual technical support is available via an online forum.

The study finds that 20 percent of men and 13 percent of women say they have watched porn online while at work. One of every three porn viewers is a woman.
More than $3,000 per second is spent on online porn.
Sunday is the most popular day for viewing online porn and Thanksgiving is the least popular day, according to the study.
