    Hey guys,

    From reading threads on the Prevx board, I saw that a new site was testing anti malware apps and I was wondering what everyone thought of some of the results they were finding.

    Appears that Prevx didn't do as well as I would have liked.

    It looks like they are quite thorough in their tests, at least as far as I can tell.

    Any opinions, and is their site reputable as far as you know?

    If this is the wrong place to post this, please feel free to move it.

    Here's a link to the site.

    This has been discussed in the Prevx section and the Anti Virus section of Wilders. You can check out the replies there.

    Untrustworthy, why? What proof we saw of all the accusations? Do we associate with ssupdater, I guess as much as http://microsoft.ssupdater.com/ does. Do we associate with and send "massive" amounts of samples to COMODO, or to be more precised our member languy99 (he is a moderator of COMODO forums) does, here is what he said about it http://malwareresearchgroup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=87.
    Are we an anonymous organization? You can see our names, address, phone number...;)

    I would like to be able to come to Wilders and answer questions about our tests and not gossip, this place is very important for the whole internet community and can be helpful for many users, would be great if everybody concentrated on precisely that.

    Regards,
    Sveta

    What exactly are you referring to? If you are talking about Prevx, they were aware of how the test was conducted. Do we need to get into details here, I would be happy to;)

    TH,

    Thanks for the link. I don't know how I missed that thread.

    I would have never started this thread if I had seen that other one.

    I hate to rehash old news.

    Thanks again.

    Your IP must be in their database, that is why you get the "cure" page and can't access the site.

    Hey if you don't understand what UNTRUSTWORTHY means look it up! Many here and at other security sites don't treat your tests as Trustworthy tests so why would one recommended your site for test results on security products?

    Hold on, don't you mean the same group of people here and on other security sites...

    Why would one recommend our tests? Well if you don't like them, I'm not asking you to;)

    The night aint over yet my friend, I actually have ESS loaded on all computers. I am having trouble understanding Defensewall. I went to a rogue site and loaded one of the fake AVs. After ending it I ran MBAM that found 15 infections, so what was Defensewalls role?

    Your website is among the list of 2 websites i ever saw with this. If i met more, they never blocked me, ever. You might want to look into it.

    Edit: the other website might actually be yours now that i think of it.

    defensewall will never allow any changes to your system those rouges were there but dead/freeze ;) can not do any harm to your pc,just hit stop attack bottom and end of story,plus by using the rollback feature tool,you are able to remove all malware traces:thumb: and your mbam will not pick up nothing and if you noticed after cleaning your temp files you will never find any malware when you have defensewall:thumb: trust me on this one defesewall will save your bacon
