According to this test by AV-Test.
The 2012 edition of Kaspersky Lab is very effective at detecting and removing malware, according to research by the renowned German testing body AV-Test. Anti-Virus and Internet Security 2012 were presented to seven different tests. The first test was to detect malware in the last three months has been discovered. Kaspersky did 99.4% of the 110,623 copies to detect malware, virus better than the average of 98.5% is. Like all other anti-virus Kaspersky scored in the WildList test 100%.
For the third test, the virus was active malware from your computer. All 23 active specimens were found and removed. On average 95.2% this virus to detect and remove 85.7%. The scanner shone especially during the detection and removal of rootkits and stealth malware. Seventeen of the eighteen root kits were found and removed (94.4%). On average this virus only 44.4% of the root kits to remove.
Besides detection was also looked into the tax system, which is lower than other scanners. Also in the sixth test, to detect legitimate files as malware, the scanner did not fall and stabbing were no false positives recorded. The last test was to protect against zero-day malware and email threats. The software 53 of the 56 managed to block attacks (94.6%), better than the average is 80.5%.
I understand it as... Kaspersky is doing good?
And lag on the system is minimal?
Yes - lag is minimal
Will you give me a direct link to download the kaspersky beta. please
There you go.
thanks, but may i know how long is the beta license
Just bring up the main Window-should show 91 days from install.
Could you post a link to the av-test.org site with the results of this test? Because i don't know how security.nl is affiliated with av-test.org and the dutch website does not provide a valid link to the test.
1: already posted in post #1
That is not what i asked. Please pay attention to what you're posting, no disrespect.
The link in post #1 is NOT from www.av-test.org.
And the second link refers to the proactive tests done by av-comparatives.org which is a totally different independent AV testing organization than av-test.org.
And in those Retrospective/Proactive tests ~ Removed Direct PDF Link as per AV-Comparatives Request - See Detection Tests page for the actual PDF ~ indeed Kaspersky 2011 and Avire came on top.
So my question stands...where did www.security.nl get their official info about the tests done on Kaspersky 2012 Beta.
What is the issue Ciubaka with the links provided?
Andreas Marx of AV-Test tweeted links to two stories regarding the testing of KIS 2012 beta on the 27th of May:
avtestorg Andreas Marx
Kaspersky 2012: Mehr Cloud, neue Oberfläche - http://heise.de/-1249963
avtestorg Andreas Marx
Nieuwe Kaspersky anti-virus is rootkit-killer [Test of Kaspersky IS 2012] http://www.security.nl/artikel/37246
It is fair to suggest the tests are legit if Andreas is posting links to them
You can check the tweets for yourself here: https://twitter.com/avtestorg The same link to Twitter can be found on the AV-Test.org homepage.
I think it should be noted it's not the new product that appears to be doing well here; it is the various engines and other components that work together to do their stuff.
I've also seen on the KL beta forums that they're currently testing a new anti-rootkit engine. It's components like this that help to fight against malware.
It's a bit strange though.
Security.nl places a newsitem on a testrun of Kaspersky 2012, done by AV-Test.org.
AV-Test.org places a tweet regarding the newsitem posted by Security.nl.
The actual test data, or a link to it, from AV-Test.org can't be found on their own site.
Heise.de/security also refers to the Kaspersky 2012 test done by AV-Test.org link
And again, AV-Test.org places a tweet link on their site referring to the Heise.de news article.
No actual links to- or test data available anywhere...sofar only some obvious marketing news about KIS2012.
I don't doubt AV-Test.org has tested KIS2012 but an actual PDF, available for download, would be nice.
(Or is it under some incomprehensible AV-Test.org<->Kaspersky NDA?)
Heise.de seems convinced the final KIS product has been tested;
"Ein erster Test in den Labors von AV-Test bescheinigt der neuen Version auch innere Verbesserungen.
...Angesichts der Tatsache, dass die finale Version schon im Umlauf ist, dürfte es sich allerdings nur noch um Tage handeln."
Which translates roughly (by Google&me) to;
"A first test in the laboratory by AV-Test confirms the new version also has internal improvements.
...Given the fact that the final version has been in circulation, it is likely, however, only be a matter of days" (before KIS2012 hits the market).
Thanks for the twitter posting analysis. I asked those questions because it seemed strange for me too that a result of a av-test.org test would be posted on a thisrd party website. Also the posting on heise.de seems strange. I don't intend to discredit anybody, don't get me wrong, i just want some official info about the test, the reasons for this being personal
Thanks for the Twitter links, but as Baserk pointed out, there is something strange in the way the news was released and linked by Andreas Marx of av-test.org. And on a personal note, i take postings on Twitter with a grain of salt.
Most probably who pays for the tests owns the right to publish it. There are many av-test.org tests not been published. It is absolutely normal. In other words, the fact it is published by someone else does not mean its rubbish.
Kaspersky is a rootkit killer and .....cpu eater. At lest on my machine.
50% CPU usage bug is not solved yet...
hahhaha that's a nice way to look at it
Same here and the new patch A does not solve the problem.
Numerous people reported this isssue so far, without any answer from devs.
Thread with my traces were deleted by mods
Another person few minutes ago, reported this again...
I have feeling that there is no feedback from developers to the community and testers. Unlike than in avast forum that I used to....
Link is invalid now. What is the bug about?
Link works okay here.
A number of users have reported high CPU usage with the beta and the original discussion thread concerning these reports mysteriously disappeared from the KAV beta forum!!!
link works but you need to register in kaspersky forum to see beta section.
It's about random 100% of 1 core usage (in case of 2 cores it's 50% overall performance degradation). avp.exe just stuck on it for hours (until reboot)..
