View Full Version : Drweb has excellent heuristics

Do you believe that NOD32 has stronger and better/more agressive heuristics than Drweb? What is the credibility of this DrWeb virus scanner? Anyone able to vouch for its success or its inferiorority?

It's really hard to comment on this one. Both products have great heuristics capabilities. The only thing is that DrWeb could produce some false positives and NOD32 is less likely to produce them.
DrWeb is an excellent AV scanner. It's getting better and better with each new release.
Thought from Hamburg research centar:
" In comparing products, some behave "rather well". Over two 3-months periods,
the following products behaves best (although they also need significant
* * * * * * * * * * * *DRW and FSE
Moreover, the following products behave best in the first 3-month period:
* * * * * * * * * DRW, FSE, SCN and AVX, INO.
* * *
But as some testbeds were rather small, and as the loss in script viruses
detection quality was so dominant, we decided NOT to grade any product
in VTCs grading scheme. We nevertheless hope that AV companies do their
best to improve the generic and heuristic detection mechanisms. And we
strongly advise customers, to upgrade their products and signatures as
often as possible".

Hi all !
* * * * I've tried Dr web for a few days now.
I been notified of one false positive so far...rmvtrjan.exe [trojan hunter] was identified as Win.Exe virus !
Don't think so !! It's the only antivirus that gave me that result.
Also, the ability to make a "boot floppy" is not included with Dr. Web. That comes in handy some times !
