And just for information: Taylor managed detection. Meaning Sophos is detecting it now too.
I am really happy it turned out to be easy to detect one month after it appeared.
Yub it's there for one month i know. But hey, it's not that much advanced that it's difficult to detect it. Especially that some AV companies returned infected samples as clean to customers. If even a junior analyst doesn't see that there's something wrong with such infected files then they have the wrong job
Have you overestimated that Symantec guy skills among polymorphics when Symantec hasn't resolved that thing yet?
I'm probably getting old, when a guy almost 20 years younger than I is calling some professionals as JUNIORs.
It's not about age but about expertise level.
Maybe saying "novice analysts" woulde be better but i get the context anyway...
well, just checked again Dr.Web update webpage....it's awesome...they're adding about 2000 viri every day.
Good work guys.
Hopefully bodes well for the next on-demand test over at av-comparatives
I always have faith in the Russians (I'm not saying that my NOD32 is bad though)
Also, @Severyanin: Does Virus Chaser use the very same engine as Dr.Web with same capabilities, or is it an older version?
ehm, at week (see http://download.drweb.com/bases/).
u're right IBK!
Hmm...only 199500 defs...I thought they had much more...anyway, their heuristic engine is not so good as far as I remmember from Av-comparatives tests.
They have 119550 definitions at the moment. Numbers don't say anything, the leaner the database the better in my opinion. Besides Dr. Web's heuristic ain't bad at all....
defs signatures does not matter at all. 199500 its not so many but this AV detects more threats then other AV that has more signature numbers!
Their heuristic engine has start to be very effective and good this last month, but unfortnely detecting to many FP's
Turn in those false positives http://support.drweb.com/sendnew/
well, of course defs are not so important always. But I was reffering that their heuristic engine with only 25% detection needs some improvement to reach more than 40% like BD, KAV, NOD32. But they're working hard with defs which is good.
DrWeb introduced much better heuristics engine with version 4.33 (av-comparatives tested v4.32b). It should score better in upcoming R/PA test.
Not really......ITW-->0%, Sum-->32%
You're only quoting the last retrospective which were in Andreas's own words not good enough (not enough samples), go back to the one before that (ITW 35% total 48%).
not good / not enough samples only regarding the itw category, not the whole test.
Yes, i know.
Hope so.... it will be a big battle on this test between AVs I think...
I decided to remove this post as its nothing to do with antivirus software..
This was a myth not support ticket...
sorry about this
