    Perhaps I missed the announcement here, but in case others did also:
    there's a new review of AV-tools on the rokop site:

    [big grin mode]
    In short:
    'In unserem neuen Test mußten aktuelle Antivirenprogramme unter Beweis stellen, wie gut ihre Hintergrundwächter mit gängiger Malware zurechtkommen. '
    [/big grin mode]

    How well do the actuel resident scanners of AV-tools cope with the current malware (it seems that the english language borrows words from the german language, must be a first :D )

    The table speaks for itself, just a try to explain the 10 points penalty codes:
    1 download possible, scanning on access only
    2 download possible, scanner reports risk, but does not block actions on the file
    3 scanner doesn't block or denies actions on the file
    4 data are removed without asking.
    5 file save is possible, but warning on access.
    6 5 points deducted because of a false positive.

    Overall conclusion: most products are adequately equipped to protect against troubles. Some enhancements are possible, mainly to protect against users that act in panic ;)

    Other good news: the performance hit is no issue for AV scanners. They are virually unnoticeable.

    Wizard: complete translation please :)
