    I have never seen this huge list of AV vendors that AV-C have put together posted here on Wilders yet so I thought why not. I find this list particularly useful since they also name the Third Party Engine if there is one.
    And hopefully they will keep it up to date, and update it when vendors changes 3'rd party engines and so forth.

    Thanks AV-C :thumb:

    Wow, almost 110 vendors if I count correctly, wonder if anyone knows them all :D
    Useful list indeed with the third party engine details, though it says Defensewall uses Bitdefender engine o_O

    Now I respect AV-C again. They mentioned Comodo in spite of some sort of feud between them.

    No surprise they included DefenseWall. They missed Appguard and ExeRadar, the products of the same type. I would add PrivateFirewall as well.

    Simply because Malwarebytes is not an AV :) VB only tests AVs afaik.
    Edit: Or maybe you meant that MBAM should be included in the VB list.

    That might have held water if Spybot S&D was not listed on that linked page @ VB100 but they are.

    Just saying practically all those on the front line of the malware wars have seen Spybot decline into the shadows whilst MBAM has risen to the top for about 3 years now.

    As far as not being AV, absolutely correct there but they given the AV names a run for their money in recent times if MRG tests are anything to go by and also worthy of note by AV-C linked page for this topic :thumb:

    Fixed what? :) Did it show that Rising included the Avira engine yesterday on the list?

    Edit: and they have taken out Defensewall all together what I can see (wich is good since it's not an AV IMO) so I guess it's possible that they edited info on Rising too.
