    An excellent site is www.av-comparatives.org run by IBK himself.
    Look under 'Comparatives' on left side margin.

    The Shield Pro is their top rated product which uses the Hauri engine....

    ...riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...


    I almost choked on my coffee....

    The only thing Hauri is good at is not detecting anything.

    Its not as bad as you think. Hauri is using Bitdefender's engine.

    Hauri makes craptacular use of BitDefender's good engine. Its a shame, because the engine is used only for unpack support.
