    On their own test they are the only ones to get 100%. Very suspicious. Don't believe that I would put much faith in it. Besides the amount of samples they used were not very large.

    well, nice to see NOD32 the second....but virIT the first, of course it's strange.
    And btw, did you expect for them to post a test on their homepage where their AV was the second or the third? :D

    Just check the DNS records, that of the test and that of the winning product. They can be traced back to the same person:

    person: Tonello Gianfranco
    address: Via Sardegna, 5 - 35030 Rubano
    address: Italy

    VirIT is one of the worst product I ever saw (in many aspects, esp. detection rate). And the most expensive (~80 Euro).

    but if comparative results aren't true, it's correct that they published false results? What about other companies? :blink:

    Not necessarily - I could quite easily put together a very small sample set where any given product will have 100% and other (maybe better) products will have less than 100%.

    So they've not necesarily published false results, but rather more likely rigged the test in their own favour.

    Either way, I wouldn't go there (JMHO).
