Did you by any chance have a hand in writing "Capricorn One"?
Avast is strong.Its scanning speed and detection rates are very good.Is something changed by Alwil in Avast?
G-DATA is also very good.Does it have two engines?I remember one of them is Kaspersky's engine.Does that mean another engine is stronger?
Yes. Constant innovation and refinement. (Alwil is not alone in this of course.)
Actually, currently G-DATA use avast! and BitDefender.
Wow,BitDefender,it reminds me of a large definition .And avast!,it reminds me of nothing .
Sorry, I don't understand your question (Or maybe i'm just dumb) ?
Would you mind explaining what that means and what is your question?
Maybe he is reffering at the movie "Capricorn One".
I've search on net and i find that.
Still i'm not able to fully understand him.
Have you been talking to my wife?
Back to the, admittedly obscure, reference to "Capricorn One".
Yes! The movie about a faked Mars landing mission, a movie which some who claim that the Apollo moon landings were faked, might say lends weight to their argument.
Still with me?
Now, when I read the av comparatives report, I, like Mr Steckler, noticed that only Avira, G-Data and Norton got a better detection score than avast! and that Avira missed out on 'Advanced+' due to FPs.
I read Vince Steckler's blog entry in which he mentions GData, Symantec/Norton, McAfee, AVG, Avira, and Kaspersky. But it's the Norton reference that's got the conspiracy theorist's going.
The pinnacle of which is this post. Well, the theory that a company CEO, secretly still working for his previous employer, exercises this hidden agenda by advocating in favour of the previous employer while blogging for his current one... Come in faked-moon-landing theorists!
A slightly more likely theory IMHO is that he is simply summarizing the test results in a manner most favourable for his present employer's product, without being afraid to mention competitors.
excellent job avast pro antivirus
and very good job f-secure antivirus
good job norton antivirus
ooops kaspersky now bad ??!!!
Probability winner award AV Comparatives 2009 is ESET
Norton probability not accurate proactive/retrospective test in November.
there will be other five tests released this year which will also be taken into account for the year award. it does not only look at the four awards. so basically, everything is still open.
You've got a lot of work to do , then , because the year is due to go away
Just 3 months and "Welcome 2010!"
2 months left - plz do not remind me!
^The proactive results in november perhaps?
Yes , actually 2 . December is not for testing
Wish you luck !
I think they'll be published as normally but there will be other tests , as well , which should appear previously - such as performance tests and something else...
*cough* dynamic? - depends on how soon "soon" is according to the August09 report
Why Panda doesn't appear at av-comparatives?
Panda have to be agree or av-comparatives can just include Panda?
Panda has to agree and pay
From the av-comparatives website-" In order to get included in our main tests, vendors must fulfill various conditions and minimum requirements."
I would like to see panda a av-coparatives, I think that i have never seen any serious test of Panda.
Actually what you see is not far from the truth. A lot of their customers are throwing the sh*t at them. I did. KIS2010 totally sucks compared to KIS2009 (which had its own set of problems).
I fully expect Panda to fail if it gets tested. But I think that there's a 0% chance of panda being included in any the tests.
Have you tried Panda 2010 products? After I received the activation code(windows 7 launch party) I tried against various zero day attacks and it blocked most of the malwares.
In terms of resource usage its not that heavy at all but really can't understand why so much processes in task manager(~.
