    Exploits score doesn't inspire much confidence in Bitdefender's B-Have and AVC. :(

    Page 12 chart doesn't list BD engine version (still at in IS 2015?) but just the sigs version, 7.56147, which was over 900 updates ago. Not that the sigs would impact to any notable extent the exploit score. However, AVC does rely on several sig (more accurately, template) files, exploits.avc3 in this case, so maybe this test will hopefully result in BD tweaking things up as well the AVC engine and libraries.

    The land of no identity :D
    Not really, I draw the "don't trust" line at Symantec. ;)

  5. You can easily check results of your own setup, they included the links to live malware, just click the PDF. :eek:

    So link of PDF is officially against TOS (spreading malware samples) ;) and sort of makes my dual browser apporach useless :( (IE for trusted favourite websites, Chrome in SBIE in Virtual XP-mode for others)

    Luckily Panda free protects well in real world conditions :D
