    yep, a respected tester ;)

    Drweb: 57% :thumb:

    silver award isnt too bad, i mean .. its no gold, but still :D

    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? :D

    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.

    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.

    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! :eek:

    lol ;)

    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?

    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.

    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. :'(

    Funny test, cupez80. It's technically impossible that Webwasher detects less than Avira... :rolleyes:
