What is a cav file and how do I open a cav file?

Pieces of data classified as virus definitions are stored in files referenced by the associated anti-virus software. The anti-virus application references the data in those files when a user updates the program or when the software is scanning and monitoring the system for possible viruses and other malicious applications. This is also done by the anti-virus program when a user accesses certain integrated features that correspond to the functions of the data in those virus definitions. The Comodo Internet Security software can be installed into a Microsoft Windows-based system to implement support for files appended with the .cav extension. This software uses these CAV files as database and update files, since the content stored in these CAV files are updated virus definitions from the Comodo Group, developer of the Comodo Internet Security software. Signature data of specific malicious applications classified as viruses among other malware types is found in these CAV files, and this data is used by the Comodo Internet Security software to recognize possible viruses in the Microsoft Windows system.
