I have done plenty of research in the area of Heuristics but need a starting point to help me to understand how to create a rule based engine. Meta data tables are interesting but would it be possible to dump each files meta data to a log file so that the program can detect any changes to the file itself and then determine if that change is bad or not?. I know my question is quite global and deals with many aspects so all that I am asking at this point for is a starting position. Also when programming this sort of thing where would the code be best placed? in a class? in a module? as a function? as a private sub? please advise.

I have also read about dissemblers but there seems to be little advice about how to use it in correlation to heuristics. Any advice about this would be greatly appreciated as a possible starting point?

Thank you all for any info you may have!!

Are you still working on that AV app?

Here is an overview of heuristics from Symantec; Have a read through and you will see near the bottom a summary of components in a heuristics engine.[^]

Also, there are plenty hits in google if you search for "developing a heuristics engine"
