Kaspersky Security Network is an integral part of Kaspersky Lab technology. With its ‘cloud’ architecture KSN automatically detects and blocks unknown malware and infected/dangerous websites, filters spam, protects children from unwanted content and lots more. Our aim is for users to always have as full a picture as possible of the current threat landscape around the world. That’s why we have come up with the Irida screensaver. It displays statistics about the latest threats that have been detected and blocked using KSN and is updated every 12 hours.

I love it!
Are there any plans to make it real-time?

Re: Love it

Hi B@z, it works in real time. As Irida said in their post: http://forum.kasperskyclub.com/index.php?showtopic=7409 view=findpost p=57280

Re: Re: Love it

Thanks for the reply, but the article above states clearly "...and is updated every 12 hours.".
That's not real time in my book.

Hard to Read

The red writing in the red boxes is too small for me to read on a 24 inch screen. For a real screen saver, all the image needs to change or shift. Apart from that, I like it.

Excellent!

This is a great screensaver. You rarely find something that is not only nice to look at, but serves a purpose as well.

Fixed bugs yet?

So is there a Mac version yet? Or are there that many bugs in the Windows version? ;-)

About Irinda

Hey Dear Sergey!

It's very attractive! But it does worry me!

I have a question! Do all programs including virus that Irinda displayed, Found known this by KIS in my system? Or viruses have the ability to hide itself from my KIS in my system?

Thanks

Multiple Displays (3)

Interesting screen saver! Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work properly in Win7 64bit with multiple displays. It shows up on only a single screen, while the desktop is on the rest of the screens.

Didn't make it off the start line in XP

Tried it on Windows XP, SP3, with all the newest .net and C++ updates, and it wouldn't start, just crash.
