    Many methods by which a content scanner can be bypassed were published, yet still many security programs were unable to find attachments in messages whose formatting was a little out of the ordinary.


    VB and A.Marx (Magdebrug University) working together, that's rather a good news :)

    What about testing NOD32 by Magdebrug University ? I had been told that ESET would let test NOD32 by Andreas about 6/7 months
    ago. Did ESET dropped the idea ? I know contact were made.

    IMHO http://www.av-test.org/ is the more complete independant and unbiased AV test which publish full results.

    I keep on not understanding why ESET does not submit its excellent product to Andreas.

    Rgds,

    Hi ;)

    I just got a post from Andreas :

    The test is scheduled in about 2-3 weeks and will be performed for the German "Trojaner-Info.de" web page (it will actually only about Trojan Horses, Backdoors etc.) It is included in another review which is currently performed for a magazine (I don't know if these results will be publically available).

    Early next year starts a bigger comparative test of av
    software on six different Windows platforms. And again, Andreas is going to test NOD32 !

    Professiat ESET Team :D

    Cheers

    Indeed Thomas site is focussed on trojans first and foremost - thus the tests performed have been - and will be focussed on trojan/backdoors - leaving ITW viruses aside.

    Looking forward to that one!

    regards.
