    Avira Antivir Personal Edition, F-Secure Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Anti-Virus achieved the best polymorphic virus detection results, missing just a few samples out of 30,000. Those three antivirus programs received the Gold Anti-Polymorphic Protection Award.

    Avast Professional Edition, AVG Anti-Virus Professional Edition, DrWeb and ESET Nod32 Antivirus also scored highly, although all of them – with the exception of Avast – failed on one family of polymorphic viruses. They all received the Silver Anti-Polymorphic Protection Award.

    Microsoft Windows Live OneCare, Trend Micro Antivirus, Symantec Anti-Virus, BitDefender Anti-Virus, Agnitum Outpost Security Suite, Sophos Anti-Virus, Panda Antivirus and VBA32 Workstation all achieved satisfactory results. Of particular note was the antivirus product from Microsoft, which showed a high level of detection for several virus families, but failed to achieve a higher score after performing poorly with the Virut 1-3 virus families.

    McAfee VirusScan, unfortunately, failed to attain the minimal amount of points needed to pass the test.
