    I have recently been trialling eTrust EZ Antivirus. I like it's simplicity and the fact that it doesn't slow down my laptop. My concern is regarding detection rates compared with other antivirus programs. I recently noted that eTrust did not detect Exploit.Win32.MS05-013.gen within a web page that was detected by a number of other antiviuses... namely KAV, Antivir & Bitdefender.

    Service load: 0% 100%

    File: k[1].htm
    Status: INFECTED/MALWARE
    MD5 d3bd16964d42a6721461e49b80fd45fe
    Packers detected: Analyzing...
    Scanner results
    AntiVir Found Exploit/MS05-013.B
    ArcaVir Found nothing
    Avast Found nothing
    AVG Antivirus Found nothing
    BitDefender Found Exploit.IEPageSpoof.Gen
    ClamAV Found Exploit.MS05-013
    Dr.Web Found Exploit.Iespoof
    F-Prot Antivirus Found nothing
    Fortinet Found W32/KillAV.DB-tr
    Kaspersky Found Exploit.Win32.MS05-013.gen
    NOD32 Found nothing
    Norman Found nothing
    UNA Found nothing
    VBA32 Found nothing


    Is this "exploit" of concern. I do know that it relates to a now patched security hole of Microsoft. Should this leave me concerned regarding eTrust's detection abilities, or are the other antiviruses detecting malware of minimal importance. Many thanks.

    eTrust is good at itw virus as other AVs but it has pretty low zoo virus detection rates, if I'm not wrong, because of its very low detection rates of zoo viruses so eTrust hasn't been qualified to get test at

    That's not a virus, it's just an Active X exploit...low in risk. You don't even need an antivirus program for protection against if it you've kept your windows up to date, as computer with windows updates current to this past spring will shrug it off.

    Do you think zoo virus detection is as important as ITW detection?
