    It has been tested recently; look for the "Test for other AntiVirus products", February 2007. ArcaVir scored 82% overall. ( MKS_VIR uses the exact same engine as ArcaVir).

    MKS_VIR/ArcaVir is not routinely tested as it does not satisfy the minimum requirement of scoring at least 85% of the normal full test set.

    In the future, if it improves its detection rate then maybe IBK will include it in regular testing.

    Not entirely correct. See this thread. In my opinion, if they "qualify", it would make sense to test both considering it's been 3 years since they both used the same engine.
