Can i trust it or is it better tu use online armor with other antivirus?
Too many FPs for me!
Same ikarus that appears on latest report of virus bulletin, right?
That ikarus has the best reactive detection but there are a few with better proactive detection....
This is what i found.
Need advice from the experts
OA++ checks OASIS to lower the risk of possible False Positive
as on detection its second to none (the ikarus engine that is) check the rates on shadow server : http://www.shadowserver.org/wiki/pmwiki.php/Stats/VirusDailyStats
maybe some fp though..
Av is very strong and effective but it's on-execution mode of running would lead me to something else for protection
OA (OnlineArmor) uses Ikarus, a TOP tier antivirus. The basic OA has a Firewall Component and a HIPS component. Thus, with OA++ your real-time protection is a 3-component team of FW+HIPS+Ikarus.
Bottom Line (IMO): OA++ is superb, state-of-the-art protection.
I believe they use both the Ikarus and Emsisoft engines combined for OA++...
But the new Ikarus/A-Squared av version should have the on access real time mode.
For superb,state of the art systems.
Too many FPs for me too
Keep in mind that OA++ only scans real time, when it knows nothing about the file. If there is say for example an MS digital signature, then OA++ won't scan it.
This reduces FP's using those engines.
