Self Healing.

You get hurt or scratched, your body recovers and covers up the scratch by a new skin.. Was wondering is this possible to do in our Softwares. Always you will find buggy softwares which gets attacked by malicious code and antivirus kicks in to clean up. Why dont we make softwares which can heal itself or stops working when it gets attacked or when there something spoofy going on.

Few days back i heard from someone that there is antivirus which does not need an virus updates. It basically keeps a tab on all the activities of the computer and if there are any malicious activity it will kill that process. Good idea right.. But i was wondering how would you update the process of keeping the tab on activities? Say if a virus does not do anything abnormal but goes and deletes the boot file on startup?? Will this be handled?

Anyways coming to software i was reading an article which said a group of researches have developed a software called CLEARVIEW which can find and fix certain types of software bugs within a matter of minutes. They have tested with Mozilla firefox and it fixed all the issues. They claim that it works fine when there are more systems in connected say LAN. This is a good start to software technology and may be in future we might not have buggy software / patches release after initial version.
