    What does the White Legend mean on the color chart? I don't see an explanation. If black means the software is Blacklisted, and the threat does not bother to run then how do they know what security software is installed on the machine if it does not run at all? It seems to me that something would have to run to identify what security software is installed on the machine, even if it only runs very briefly.

    I see they show results with Firewall off for some products. I wish they would have been able to get results with firewall on to see what the difference would have been.

    Ok, thank you for the explanation. I can't even navigate through the index with No-script. It's ABE protection blocks me from doing so. I'm not sure which part of ABE is doing the blocking. It may be easier to just switch to IE for a moment.

    IE does not work at all with the page. Oh, well.

    Edited: It seems it was not IE that was at fault. It says server not found with Firefox also after disabling No-Script ABE protection to be able to navigate through the index on the left.

    You're welcome. Same here with NoScript. I'll have to try to take a peek later.

    Thanks to @Macstorm for posting this.

    It seems that the indexes on the left do not work at all. They all say server not found.

    You're welcome.

    I don't usually trust everything I read, but this one's got me really stumped. I find hilarious how the hacking team "labels" the AV's (soldier, elite...)
