yep, a respected tester
silver award isnt too bad, i mean .. its no gold, but still
i was also impressed with drwebs adding of 'new samples', and as expected f-secure and kaspersky were the highest here.
i just wonder, how many of the undetected 1793 drweb samples, will my prevx 2.0 have detected?
i suppose the good thing is, that only 1 av failed the test (VirusBuster 12%)
Very good test and results. It shows the same results I see using the samples I receive or get in internet. In my opinion one more trusty test to us.
Good result this time.
This test does not test for or deduct for false alarms. As compared to AV-Comparatives these ratings are not as meaningful.
they dont have a false alarm test, all detections are malware.
av-comp have a serperate fp test, and the results change their rating only, not their detection scores.
Dr Web is growing here. Well Done
Interesting... good work Avira and Bit Defender.
I agree but the numbers of the test say all we need to know about detection rates.
And I always prefer some FPs to a lot of false negatives...
Maybe Av-Comparatives and ESET disagree with me, of course...
with excellent removal rates and 'usually' friendly support
its only the signature overall detection that is stopping drweb from TAKING OVER THE WORLD!
Busted, disgusted, & can't be trusted. The Buster is also the backbone of PCTools AV, right? Must be really inexpensive to license the Buster boy.
Way to go Avira & BitDefender. DrWeb is coming along nicely, as well.
In Table 3, I wonder why all the top tier AVs had lower scores for week 3? Anyone have a possible explanation?
Right It isn't that bad, though.
its not completly useless, but its not great either.
They need more generic signatures
you dont need to tell me what they need, tell them!
Can't do that, I have arachnophobia
That's to bad

As a long-time user, believer, and sometimes "defender" in/of BitDefender products for the last few years, I was pleased to BitDefender 2008 do well in this test.
Question: has any other recents tests tested BD 2008?
Thanks in advance.
by looking at this graph does this mean??
it states about this pic: Best according to the detection of new harmful programs they proved to be F -Secure Anti- virus (98%), Kaspersky Anti- virus (93%), Avira AntiVir Personal Edition Premium (93%), BitDefender Antivirus (86%) and AVG Anti- virus (86%).
zfactor, the graph shows that Kaspersky is absolutely unbeaten in terms of adding signatures/generic detections for new malware samples they recieved.
Only 71% for Avira? Damn, I need to get my lazy ass up. Anything below 90% proactive detection is so... unexciting.
is this test reliable ? http://news.softpedia.com/news/Do-You-Known-Which-Is-The-Best-Windows-Antivirus-72929.shtml
Funny test, cupez80. It's technically impossible that Webwasher detects less than Avira...
LOL thats why im asking about it....
