comment How can i get my algorithm corrected? it seems it should be simple
Compression is not an InfoSec issue. This could be migrated to StackOverflow, but since there is also an offer of payment, I'm afraid that it isn't on-topic anywhere in StackExchange.

comment What is the precise difference between a signature based vs behavior based antivirus?

comment What is the precise difference between a signature based vs behavior based antivirus?
This might be an oversimplification. Old viruses had variants, too, but as new code morphs, the signature approach isn't scalable. Behaviour-based approaches can also be much simpler than your example. E.g. no user-land process should be writing to System32.
