    @ kiko78

    Thanks for posting :thumb:

    Interesting enough to keep an eye on. But i must admit some of the results are a Big surprise !

    One of the nice things is, that for each Malware they list, it's accompanied with a VT scan & Comodo SandBox report etc. For eg:

    The results look more like a false positive test.
    With all of the known AV with the highest false positive rates at the top. :D

    Very interesting find. Thank you for sharing :)

    Well trustworthy or not :doubt: It's one of few tests that updates daily wich is very nice indeed :thumb:
    So it's worth to bookmark I think!

    But how are the tests performed? Is it a 'whole product' test, which I doubt, or are only the on demand scanners used? In that case the test is not worth much i.m.o.

    It looks like they are using Virustotal as a testing method, same number of scanners, same scanner names etc. So that would mean it's only on-demand and with outdated engines, for some vendors more than others.

    I remember being in contact with this company via VirusTotal. If I remember correctly they run their own Clam powered AV. I have not been to their site in a while so I don't know when they started doing AV testing.
