According to A-V Comparatives, their Real World Comparative does include exploit testing: http://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/avc_factsheet2014_09.pdf . So this might be the closest to an objective test that can be currently had. Also their results are significantly different than that given for the recent MRG report. The thing I find very suspicious in the MRG report is Eset's Smart Security results; they just don't correspond with any other testing of the product. Also it could be very well that the archaic system configuration used in many of the MRG tests are just not supported and correspondingly protected by many of the main stream vendors anymore. Finally in the MRG "artificial" exploit test which one has to strongly suspect was custom engineered for HMPA, only EMET and MBAE additionally blocked anything. Plus the test was done using FireFox exploiting a plug-in. I would love to see how EMET would perform against a similar exploit using IE.
