Some info on how untivirus works: http://www.symantec.com/region/reg_eu/resources/antivirus.html
You will not be able to write one in java (unless you use JNI -> the native code bridge) because Java
program doesn't have access to many of the system resources (no direct access to memory, no access to MBT (master boot record), ...)
Also why to write your own when you can get good ones for free (this is a very complex task which requires frequent updates to support
new attack techniques)
