    Has anyone see this testing that someone did for antivirus applications? In particular the Test 6: Detection where he test the Bitfrost trojan infection. Does nto appear NOD32 found it at all. :eek:

    It was not detected because it was crypted with a special tool "Icognito" ...But its really hard and bad to see that even this trojan was not detected during on-execution....

    Very bad to see this !!!

    Seems that this is not a concern of anyone.

    Every week one of these sorts of tests are posted up here. The problem is most of the time there is some sort of methodology error in the tests. There are industry recognised AV tests which are the ones you want to pay attention to.

    "Most of the time" so that means that sometimes an antivirus program may indeed have problems.Complacency with industry standard tests sometimes comes back to bite one. Virus creators are always working on defeating antivirus applications.
