Is this a good website from eScan but WOT displayed this website is bad.
According to URLvoid MyWOT are the only ones that say this site is suspicious. However, our Barracuda Web Filter where I work also flags this site, but I've found our web filter to be unreliable.
Avast says nothing
eScan is a legitimate company, and their AV has a very high detection rate. But also a very high false positive rate. It detected malware in my Catalyst Control Center and several other common apps.
Edit: oh, you mean the URL itself.
You meant eScan got very high false positives?No wonder when I using its toolkit utility to scanned my PC it detected viruses that other av vendors don't.So it already deleted 1 file and renamed 3 files in my laptop for me.Will my laptop works unstable?I am afraid about it now.But wait a minute,why did AV comparative showed eScan got low false positive?
I don't know, but for me and others it did present a lot of FPs.
I have tested it later, too, and got several FPs again, where no other AVs show them.
this original av. i used in 2007 with winxp. but konw i think they are using bitdefender engine, someone correct me i am posting wrong info here. other than this i do not have any info.

http://www.escanav.com is the official website for eScan. The above mentioned site is that of a distributor. On first glance it seems to be reliable enough, but caveat emptor
(eScan uses BitDefender + it's own engines. The FPs aren't so bad now IMO)
The in-house engine creates FP but those are mainly related with registry not files in my case. But their support is less aware or concious of what an FP can do. I contacted their support multiple times and always they have asked me to remove/delete all 'threats'. But the interface is quite good and also the detection & cleaning.
