    Different results in the URL block test for ESS v6 and ESS v7? There are no differences in terms of url blocking between these two versions...

    You do not understand. You did not read the methodology, and we do not have a person who translates 10 pages to English.

    Eset released in October version 7. Version 6 we stopped test, but it still results for October.

    Isn't it rather silly to rank them like you do then, if the products aren't tested at the same time under the same conditions? I understand the "methodology", but that seems like a bad methodology that doesn't give accurate results.

    Think of a better methodology with zero budget and implementing it into practice, if think that it is so easy. Purchase several computers, hire programmer, build a network, etc. It is not easy to which it seems. Money, money, money...

    We explained in methodology what the situation is, and AVLab is an amateur project, not commercial.

    Another data point in assessing products. Thank you AVLab.


    So, on Malicious URL blocking, Bitdefender did very well with a 97%.

    Do I get that same result from Bitdefender TrafficLight? They could share the same data... but I dunno.


    And on Malicious URL blocking, Norton got a dismal 32%. Do you think this is the same as Norton DNS would have done? I again would think they might share the same data, but I don't know. Does anybody know?


    Thank you,

    Emsisoft scored 91%, but don't they use the Bitdefender engine as well as their own? I'd have expected Emsisoft to be higher than 91%.

    @lordraiden: this is why I think we have to take such results with a grain of salt because of such disparity, like the above, and what Marcos posted.

    I also note that, by admission, this is an amateur test so while it may be of interest to some, it isn't something that can be cited in noting which AV does the best at malicious URL blocking.

    The Bitdefender engine has nothing to do with URL blocking actually. In the past couple of weeks we spent a lot of time improving the URL blocking capabilities of our products. We aren't completely where we want to be, but the newest results are a huge improvement compared to the results of previous months (September for example).

    Don't want to comment on this particular test, but Emsi seem to have a knack for improving their product very quickly judging from other tests and their responsiveness re: bugs, false positives. :thumb: So their improvement on this month is anything but far-fetched. It's scary to think how great an AV it can be in the future if they keep it up.

    Comodo did not perform well in URL blocking, no surprise as it does not have a web shield.

    But what does fail in URL blocking mean, does it mean that the PC was infected?

    I doubt it. Comodo is hard to get past, even without a web filter.

    no offense but what's the point in performing such tests if you're low on budget, manpower, etc.? :rolleyes:
    because with insufficient resources, the results will be nowhere near to real world scenarios.
