Thanks for the heads up!
Great job by Avira.
Panda Free still excellent.
Great job Avira and Kaspersky
Also here (chart) =
I just gotta get some Lavasoft.
Good to see updates on security testing as always.
Again good results from Qihoo 360 and Avira.
Re Avira's FP:
Real-world test, March 2015= 0
False Alarm test, March 2015 = 44
Don't know why the March False Alarm test numbers weren't used for the March 2015 Real World test.
Doesn't make sense.
These are different tests with different test sets
The False alarm test set is independent of the test sets of the file detection and real world tests.
Avira and Kaspersky: Wow! Oddly enough Avira in this test has 0 FPs but got many in the file test...
LOL... yeah, serve me up a big 'ole cup of Lavasoft..
Good catch. I wonder what the deal is there..
Avast! also improved a bit over last year here.Hopefully just like the improvement was seen in AV-test we will even see it here.Well Done Qihoo!!
Ok, Avira & Kaspersky, where are the others
Looks like avast! has improved consistently. Some mroe tests to fully confirm it but so far it looks good, scoring at the very top. Anything at 99% and above is a really good result even if you're not at the "top 3" position.
Yes, they've stole the show
One other is Emisoft = it did have 4 FPs though, but detected 100%. In 0.7% of the cases Emsisoft Anti-Malware displayed an alert which recommends the user to block the threat instead of automatic removal, which is why AV-C counts these as “user dependent”.
One additional + for EMISOFT is that it detects PUPs
The free Fortinet is not bad either, and just one FP.
Yes, Emsisoft AM is excellent, I just wish it wasn't too "heavy" on my old rig.
Does it slow you down or is it just its memory usage?
Makes my old laptop slow, I never watch the memory usage
trend showing lots of fp's in this test. this has also been my experience with it. but a few here said ...no way trend doesnt have fp's lol....
Shhhh or else the fish will come and take the bait.
F-secure is also struggling with FPs for months now...
