Definition Edit

To propagate, a virus must infect other host programs. Some detection tools (called detection by interception) are intended to intercept attempts to perform such "illicit" activities. These tools halt the execution of virus-infected programs as the virus attempts to replicate or become resident. Note that the virus has been introduced to the system and attempts to replicate before detection can occur.[1]
