    Comodo has a mindblowing result in both protection and performance!

    Nice results for Comodo!
    6/6 in Protection.

    Zonealarm and WSA need to improve.

    Well I may be wrong but from what I remember Zonealarm Free Anitivrus lacks the riskware definitions from Kaspersky.

    Besides KIS is more than just a simple AV, it has great website blocking abilities, HIPS and behaviour blocker(PDM), KSN etc.

    Anyway this is just one test, Zonealarm can do better next time.

    I think Zonealarm uses an older KIS engine, version 7 I think.

    MSE was the real loser, that's the worst I've ever see it do since it made it's debut in 2009.

    You're right. Results not very good. They still don't have a handle on FPs.
    Nice job by Eset. Their performance score seems off to me.
    Symantec continues its excellent results even though it gets hammered in this forum.

    I haven't seen any FP's it must have been something random because it didn’t affect any users that I’ve heard of. WSA’s FP rate has been very low for the last few months from what I’ve heard. Also no complains in the Prevx Forum or the Webroot Community Forums. As users have said in the past it's only a test not real world usage that users would see.

    Users might never know. 'Ransomware' often screams it's presence to the user of an infected machine, but most malware likes to keep itself nice and quiet whilst it records your keystrokes and sends them back to the mothership. Bawahahahaaaaaaaaa! :D

    Also surprising is NIS2013 performance hit result. It's usually been lightning fast any time I've given it a go.

    True if an unknown process is running it's being monitored then when determined bad it will rollback to the pre-infection state. Also Identity Shield will always protect against any keyloggers and much more.

    It will 'rollback' bank account details already sent from infected PC to external botnet? Come on, play fair now TH. WSA is a decent product no doubt, and roll-back a useful function. But no sense in making wild claims about it's abilities though. In this test WSA did fine with widespread/prevalent samples in the up to 4 weeks itw range, but seemed to struggle with the 0-days. 90%-91% 0-day detection not great. That would worry me a bit. Hope it improves.
