    Hi SunnySun.
    Thats a new one on me, have you got a link to either the developers site or to where you heard about it?

    Thanks , I did sort of have a suspicion that AVP was probably an acronym for anti virus programme :rolleyes: , it was the particuler app in question that i hadnt heard of before, however thanks for the link.

    Huh...UNA AVP...was confusing me, I thought the UNA company laughed at its own scan engine and launched UNA AVP with AVP engine LOL :p :)

    Detection is not too hot; http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/archives/products.xml?unasoft.xml
    http://www.virus.gr/english/fullxml/default.asp?id=67&mnu=67

    Overall, not a recommended AV for protection;

    "Hailing from the Ukraine, this was another new product on offer this month - and was possibly the most disappointing product I have yet reviewed in terms of detection rate. The missed files were scattered without any distinguishable pattern throughout all the test sets, dispelling the view that perhaps detection had been concentrated in any one key area. To compound these woes, the product detected a considerable number of viruses where they did not exist. Needless to say a VB 100% for UNA looks a far off prospect. " ( Virus Bulletin, Feb, 2004).

    Moreover, this AV has been 'plugged' on various forums recently; see for example; http://forum.gladiator-antivirus.com/index.php?showtopic=24108&st=0&#entry86096

    I tried this av a year ago and I wasn't impressed. Maybe, they improved UNA during last year or so.

    Here is 1 test where UNA scores well. (Its in Russian but the table speaks for itself)

    This last test seems fairly new.

    So huge improvement in last year or so :doubt: :eek:

    Clam AV beat NOD!

    This test was done at the end of February 2005. Don't know about credibility.

    Thank you a lot for your information!!!! It's very useful!!!AS i understood UNA stands at the 3-d place!
    Unfortunately they didn't test AVAST! Id like to see which place it would take and compare it with UNA. Many people like Avast but i don't find it very compatitive

    So you have to take your words back about Una.

    Thank you for the links

    I find myself pretty worried about the credibility on that one myself - I also wonder what that last column is... Anyway I wouldn't find myself messing with an AV that spammed security forums like it apparently has GSF, but perhaps that is primarily a matter of taste.

    NOD 1.1?
    Seems like this test used a fairly ancient version. :rolleyes:

    That's a signature version :rolleyes: I don't understand why they always use sigs version everywhere instead of program version. Stupid.

    Not quite yet. Let's see how it performs over a range of testing sites over a longer period of time ;)

    Most people would not judge any AV on one test-bed with no clear indication of the testing procedure, malware samples etc.

    Wow - knowing that makes the test harder to believe.

    Just found one of FireFighter's old posts where he tests UNA against a number of free AV's.

    Overall, on the basis of available tests so far, it still looks like an 'average' AV to me.

    yes it does, im new to nod and i find that hard to believe. especially with everyone saying nod has the best heuristics. nod so far is really awsome and getting better all the time.

    Hi!I've read UNA has the virus base updating when was the last testing.Probably that was why they had failed it :'( :rolleyes: In general I can say that we'll see new results after next testing. Now it's just some suppositions.Users need only facts. Good luck! ;)

    Hello!!!!I heart a lot of answers about antivirus programs,but as for me UNA is the most reliable AVP because I haven`t any problems with virus.The virus`s base of UNA updates permanently.So it is good.I advise to visit site www.antivirus-una.com
