    Did you actually manage to infect the system or just Rising didn't have the signatures. It appears that this AV has a few more tricks in the bag: http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/06/26/unpopular-free-rising-antivirus-worthy-of-praise-avg-free-alternative/

    I just looked at some of the options and at the layout and thought to myself that I did not like the layout and did not know how good it really is ..so I re-installed my KIS2009. So is all the fun goodies missing due to my Vista 64? From their web page I found all the goodies were not offered in the free AV.

    Thanks for the info Kees, Rising seems to be an interesting product. If I decide to make some changes to my security setup I will consider it.

    If it's not too late, I'll test it in about one week with about 20.000 samples or more. :)

    Thx,

    I would appreciate that. I am not allowed to bring our PC down anymore.

    I ran some test with samples of a friend's honeypot. Some friends appeared to drink a beer. That night, I completely forgot about the test. Next day my wife downloaded paid music to create a new aerobics CD for her lessons, it is her after work day hobby. Afterwards, I recovered to a clean image. She promised a fellow instructor a copy of the CD. Then she discovered the newly bought DRM rights had gone with the infected image, I only heard Keeeeeeesssss. :oops:

    I can not get find info on saving DRMrights especially WMA files are a pig to deal with (other formats can be saved by backing up the DRM rights and DRM all users directory), so any info on that would be appreciated.

    Regards

    Kees

    Got the same result. Also tried it against ~500 baddies and it could catch only around 150 in comparison of 480-490 by Avira.

    so if a supposed AV can detect a "baddie" only on scanning and not on its execution it simply means or atleast i would term it as an "on-demand scanner"

    I'm back with my results.

    I've scanned 16.000 infected files (both old and new).
    Rising detected only about 7000 which means 43 % detection rates.

    Of course I don't claim my results are very reliable or professional-made.

    All 16000 samples were detected by Avira. :)

    Not so promising anyway...

    Thanks Pykko. I suppose that was on demand scanning. Did you try to execute any of the non flagged malware to see if it will be caught in real time? Just curious, because Rising is supposed to have various non-signature based capabilities.

    Yes, on-demand scanning.

    I'll try to execute those missed samples, but I don't promise to do it very soon.
    Anyway Rising has indeed a very good HIPS\behavior blocker. ;)

    Thanks. Just grab say 10 samples at random and click them (under Returnil or something) to see if something happens. In deed, i 'd like to see how the other features will react. Cause 43% is too low really for a so feature-rich AV. Maybe they 've managed to make an AV that relies less on signatures?

    On my old test PC, as a on demand scanner, Rising only detected 2 of the 11 Trojans. Antivir detected all 11.

    I don't know how to interpret this too. Logically it should catch equally when scanning or running something.
    Anyway I'm changing to Avira because I have Comodo for HIPS and just needed some extra detection. Otherwise with this non-intrusive but working HIPS module Rising could still be better choice.

    I'm running that 6 month trial at work. First when the Olympics were ending I received a pop up from Rising that said something like they were so happy about the Olympics that they will extend my trial to 1 year. After all the 6 moth trial was olympics oriented. The mascot would do some olympics stuff if you activate him. Anyways in december I left the computer alone for a while and when I came back it said that it needed restart because of update. And when I restarted I had Rising 2009 instead of 2008 0_0 Anyways I made a few comments about my version in the Comodo forums. As you can see in my post there are a few differences. (Note: Yes jeims is me lol)

    Has anyone got the graphics glitch like this?

    edit:
    ATI Catalyst 9.1 might be the cause
    downgraded it to 8.12 and everything is fine now

    Yea, I'm more and more convinced that Rising is still not to be trusted too much. I submitted some malware to them to help them out rise detections and later received in mail something along the lines of: Specialists in our lab assure you that that you can feel safe because the files are clean.
