    I know that i have seen it before,but i can't remember where. I googled for it,but no luck. Can anyone give me the link to any latest packer test or to that old one? The one where they tested several AVs against different packers?
    Thanks

    I dont suppose packers are all that important if an AV has a memory scanner. If the AV does NOT have a memory scanner, one has to take its unpack support into consideration.

    If the malware is already running in the memory it's ALREADY TO LATE.
    A trojan could just disable all the AV programs before they are even able to perform a memory scan.

    Not with PG :D (bought it yesterday)

    Just goes to show the importance of a layered defense. I understand NOD32 already has good unpacking ability.

    jeps, an effective memory scanner is a continuous real time scan. to intercept the malware before its is executed..

    nod has unpacking support for upx, aspack, how many more??
    mind you nod has been able to detect many packed/repacked variants with advanced heuristics

    This test shows archive support,not packers support.
    I need test where they compare AVs in unpacking of packers (ASPack,PKLite,UPX,PE_Compact and so on...)

    Rokop for instance.

    Nautilus did play around with runtime packer tests too.

    I agree. I think Process Guard is probably the most important of my defenses.

    PG is for sure a very nice program :D
    I use it too.
    But please let's stick to the topic.

    Oh well....considering that BD has a good unpacker and ArcaVir has decent heuristics, I may just use both...or I may give away ArcaVir :p:)
