    It doesn't have antiphishing. Version 6 will include antiphishing - read post 3 in this thread.

    I am not sure I see a value in this. I recognize such stuff, and don't think I will get caught in it.
    What is the real risk?

    But the average user doesn't and they get caught up in this.

    I'd be more interested in seeing how browsers compare against those products, SmartScreen/PhishTank/Safebrowsing/etc.

    Another interesting point would have been to test what the browsers own build in anti-phishing filters could have blocked. Unfortunately this wasn't tested.

    ESET v5 is not intentionally focused in Anti-Phising, so the result is the expected.

    You will be amazed to see how people still fall for these scams (even the lamest of them all). But in some cases the banks are not helping much either. Phishing scammers often find the most innovative ways of exploiting an e-mail template for their own benefit.

    I don't know if it's still the case, but Kaspersky used to get phishing URLs from Phishtank database. (http://www.kaspersky.com/news?id=207575573)

    "Kaspersky is also going to release a new version (2013) soon, which includes improved phishing protec- tion too. The new version would have blocked 97,4%"

    Yes it is a beta , but Kaspersky and Bitdefender are always doing great at all tests.

    Very good results from Avast! I like how they use the free version in testing, and it beat the paid versions of AVG, Avira, etc.

    Exactly, i think avast is the only company that tests with its free products,which i think is absolutely great.
