English term or phrase:The cool part of the story
A new virus, however, will not yet have a signature characteristic, as it has not yet been studied by the virus research team, so this zero-day attack will slip past the traditional antivirus checks in the kernel. Then, when the infected carrier file runs, and the virus ultimately then gets launched, it is born on the computer and immediately begins doing its dastardly deeds; in the case of it being a mass mailer, it ravages the e-mail client's address book and begins sending out tons of e-mails.
The cool part of the story next happens when the security software engages to stop the virus dead in its tracks. All modern antivirus software contains--in addition to the basic signature file scanning mentioned earlier--a technique termed heuristical behavior detection that is designed to stop a zero-day attack like the mass-mailer worm being described.
