    The April VB100 results have been out, with testing on a XP Pro SP3 bed. Was surprised to see that both Rising and Twister allowed themselves to be tested; both failed, of course, with Twisters results being especially poor.

    Re: AV Comparatives April Results

    Could you please change the name of your thread or ask a mod to change it, since Av-Comparatives is a branch of it's own, it doesn't relate to VB100.

    Hopefully, a member who recalls his username and password will be kind
    enough to list the results.

    Failure reason:
    Filseclab: 53 wildlist misses, 21 false positives.
    Rising: 10 false positives.
    Just need to register (free).

    Missing 53 VB100 samples is quite an achievement :shifty: However overshadowed by Finport of course ;)
    Updated my list above.

    From those results it looks like:
    Rising failed not because of missed detections but false positives.
    That's not necessarily a bad result for Rising IMO.

    Basically, everyone that should have passed, passed. But you can't get further details of the results without paying a subscription (which sucks in my opinion, but they have to make money). Registering tells you who passed/failed and by how much.

    Twister may have fail because of the non-use of FDDS, I'm not sure of how it was tested so i cant say however. FP's Should have been much higher with FDDS on Full/Med.

    I thought these tests were completely outdated?

    I hate to register at sites. Too many sites demand that these days, its not "user friendly".. I hope VB100 remove the need to register.. o_O o_O
