    Hey "pcslinfo"

    Great to see a New Mobile Security Test from pc-security-labs :)

    BTW, i want to say small issue on your translation section :oops:
    The report (Greater China Region Malware Defense Test) which was done in 2011 March said that "Traditional Chinese, German and English report will be updated soon" but still end of July no English report published :mad:

    Like to see all your reports in English (including the next upcoming) ;)

    Regards,
    Dark Lord

    Forgot to mention :( add Gdata mobile security too.

    So if I'm correct u must add the following products from all users request :
    G Data, F-Secure, Eset, Kaspersky, Lookout and Dr Web

    This will make the most anticipated Mobile Security Test all Wilders Members waited in year 2011 ;)

    Yeah, just like in the beginning with windows, low new threats everyday, just wondering how much it will take until it's in the thousands of malware everyday and we get to On Access/HIPS all that stuff :D

    Hahaha probably.

    All this of course if no OS take over Android which i "Doubt" but nothing is impossible.

    Id also like to see Dr. Web.

    It would be interesting to see the performance lag of the AV's as well. Perhaps a bench test of before installation and after installation.

    Yeah, if i ever get a "smart"phone i will not put any kind of AV (At least not in the near future), they're already struggling without it and i guess it would be uber battery drain :D

    Some AV solution provide some additional function like SMS filter, Privacy Protection, etc. And it is a trend that android malware will be much more popular in the coming future:D

    That is a big security risk.
