McAfee Stinger is a portable removal tool utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It's not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but a specialized tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system.
McAfee Stinger includes a real-time behavior detection technology (called "Real Protect") that monitors suspicious activity on an endpoint. It leverages machine learning and automated behavioral based classification in the cloud to detect zero-day malware in real-time.
McAfee Stinger utilizes next-generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed .DAT files and scan performance optimizations. It detects and removes threats identified under the “List Viruses” icon in the application.
