    The latest av-test.org is 6 months old already.
    Has any new test been done by them in the meantime or are they going to release one soon?

    Thank you for any info.

    It seems av-test.org tested another 34 virus scanners, the website however is in dutch:

    http://security.nl/artikel/22931/1

    5 is the highest score (best rating) and 1 is the lowest score (bad rating).

    - The 1st column is the virus detection rating
    - The 2nd column is the spyware detection rating.
    - The 3rd column is the false positive rating.
    - The 4th column is the scanning speeds rating.
    - The 5th column is the pro-active/heuristics rating.
    - The 6th column is the signature creating response time rating.

    The winners are: Norton 2009, Avira Premium 2008, F-secure 2009, G Data 2009 and WebWasher Gateway 6.6. All these obtained a total score of 28 points. The test was conducted with 1,1 million current malware samples, 94000 spyware samples and 2,5 million clean files to test the false positive rating.

    Looks like the new in-house Hydra engine from F-Secure really does some good ... If AV-Comparitive also vindicate this result with nearly same scores.
    I'll swallow my pride and take back all that I have said about F-Secure. And return to the fold ( I still have the license till Jan-09).

    ---EDIT---
    What the heck, happened to DrWeb !! They are in the back row now ... behind new kids like VBA32 and K7 o_O

    CA got the worst results. I'm surprised that Rising has done so badly.

    Yes, they used to be equal (or just less) to Kaspersky. But now if they reduce resource usage (Didn't see any drop in FIS 2009 RC), I will have nothing to complain about .... ;)

    wow... thank you denniz.
    I didn't knew about that. :)

    Pretty nice results. I'm amazed that Symantec is growing and growing.
    Avira stays up as usual. Good work.

    The only advantage over kaspersky seems heuristic detection,F-Secure made more false positives.

    In tests Dr.Web has been in the "back row" since -04 or something.

    I'd say Norton is the intruder in the list so i'd prefer putting them in alphabetical order :D

    Thanks for the link :thumb:

    Hmm, dunno, the scores provided by that anonymous poster seem just a bit low....I guess the best way to verify those posts about AVG and Avast would be to email Mr. Marx....:doubt:

    I was hoping that Rising AV would have improved by now; however, Risng is consistent in the sense that it performs poorly in many tests. That's saddening.

    So now does this mean anyone that scored low was at a disadvantage again, or for once is people going to see a pattern with some AV's. time for the makers of some AV's to wake up and build a product that works. :D and quit trying to discredit the tests. :doubt:

    Well, I use Dr.Web because it works for me.

    I'm simply not intrested anymore in which product detects this and that in percentages of something according to someone. Nowadays "working" consists of many other valuable things for me, that I often find lacking in some of the "best in tests" products.
