    Whenever I get ready to delete a snapshot I always go and grab some malware just to test the product I am getting ready to dump.

    The other night, I had Prevx loaded and installed a new fake av, dont ask me the name because I honestly dont remember. But it came from malware domain list.

    Prevx detected it but could not clean it. I then tried my offline scanner, old MBAM and it detected it but could not get rid of it. That shocked me. Hitman Pro failed to detect it.

    I was getting ready to delete the snapshot and thought what the hell, I had been hard about the new beta to Eset so I downloaded it. After install and a reboot, it grabbed the damn thing and completely cleaned it without even having to do a reboot. It was almost to easy I thought. But there were honestly no parts left.

    Now I am not comparing products here as this is just one stupid piece of malware, and others testing may find the complete opposite. But my testing, has no hidden agendas like some who have thier own sites for this, I could care less, my loyality is not to any product and you folks know this.

    But Eset 5 Beta tore a new anus into this fake AV and it utterly shocked me. If this is any sign of what is to come, and I am not saying it is, well, it is about dang time. Eset never cleaned anything like this, so I am thinking there are some changes to this engine that Marcos hasnt bragged about, yet.:thumb:

    Great news. I hope things continue to get better. Want to hopefully stay with Eset in September when my licenses expire, but am starting to look at other products in the meanwhile.

    Ofcourse ESET products are gr8 but when we talk about its inbuilt PF it is not aggressive. I have enclosed a Leak test result below, I do expect 100% results not 40% because v4.2 has given 50% which is with out HIPS basically then with HIPS it should be doubled.

    1. RootkitInstallation: MissingDriverLoad Protected
    2. RootkitInstallation: LoadAndCallImage Protected
    3. RootkitInstallation: DriverSupersede Protected
    4. RootkitInstallation: ChangeDrvPath Vulnerable
    5. Invasion: Runner Vulnerable
    6. Invasion: RawDisk Vulnerable
    7. Invasion: PhysicalMemory Protected
    8. Invasion: FileDrop Vulnerable
    9. Invasion: DebugControl Protected
    10. Injection: SetWinEventHook Vulnerable
    11. Injection: SetWindowsHookEx Vulnerable
    12. Injection: SetThreadContext Vulnerable
    13. Injection: Services Vulnerable
    14. Injection: ProcessInject Protected
    15. Injection: KnownDlls Vulnerable
    16. Injection: DupHandles Protected
    17. Injection: CreateRemoteThread Protected
    18. Injection: APC dll injection Vulnerable
    19. Injection: AdvancedProcessTermination Vulnerable
    20. InfoSend: ICMP Test Protected
    21. InfoSend: DNS Test Vulnerable
    22. Impersonation: OLE automation Protected
    23. Impersonation: ExplorerAsParent Vulnerable
    24. Impersonation: DDE Vulnerable
    25. Impersonation: Coat Vulnerable
    26. Hijacking: WinlogonNotify Protected
    27. Hijacking: Userinit Vulnerable
    28. Hijacking: UIHost Protected
    29. Hijacking: SupersedeServiceDll Vulnerable
    30. Hijacking: StartupPrograms Vulnerable
    31. Hijacking: ChangeDebuggerPath Protected
    32. Hijacking: AppinitDlls Vulnerable
    33. Hijacking: ActiveDesktop Protected

    So I do expect this to be rectified, I personally vote for v2.71.39 than v4.2 or v5.00.65.00.I also prefer to use with threatfire for better protection.
