Are not detected by it.
Is this still true?
says who it is not detected?
All the traditional AVs are capable of detecting spywares same is for avira
info (even keyloggers)
i think no AVs will detect commercial Spy programs,bcoz they are not malicious.
if u want to block those ,u have to use HIPS or behavior blockers.
But they will display the same behaviour, friendly or not. The same observable behviour, I'd hope, would be flagged by my AV.
An interesting article from Sophos here where they claim to detect spyware/keylogging no matter who wrote the code. I'd hope Avira had the same policy too!
Even this one?
Thats a ridiculous test. Here you have a company trying to promote their anti-keylogger software and lo and behold they build a TEST TOOL (not a malicious software) that from the screenshot appears to be digitally signed by them and show how it bypasses other products. THATS JUST RIDICULOUS.
there are a few commercial keyloggers who have tried hard to not be detected but even still some av's pick them up and some dont its the same way as virus' no av will find 100% but many will still detect these commercial ones if you need it and it gets detected simply add to exclusions of your av.
Just for fun, I ran that Zemana keylogger test. The first program to nail it was Prevx. After I disabled Prevx, then Anti-Executable nailed it. I didn't even bother going any further, my anti-Virus was never needed. Oh yeah, all this was done inside of Sandboxie on a system virtualized by Shadow Defender.
