    I also tried it with AVG on my parents computer, it did nothing, and did not even find it in a scan. TDS-3 which I am trialing on this machine found it running in memory. Every time I come home from college I need to clean this computer up which tells me if you are a higer risk user, AVG free is not good at keeping you clean. I am very glad I dumped it for NOD32 on my computer.

    From what I have heard about it it is pretty realistic test but many AV will not pickup tests like this because they are not real virus' they are just that tests.

    Hope this helps,

    Thats strange, I was under the impression that these tests were reasonably realistic.

    Thanks topper. This should explain what I was trying to say without repeating that thread. :)

    Thanks,

    Trend's PC-cillan catches this (has for quite awhile) during the download of the zip file. Only if I turn off the Realtime Scan, then I can download and unzip the file Which, I think, is good protection. I might try running the exe if it survives a manual scan.

    Interesting, and scary. They were right about one thing, though, avast (and I mean the new ver. 4.6) never sensed anything wrong, even when I opened the interface so it could do its memory-and-startup scan.

    Hi,

    The TrojanSimulator just demonstrates the behaviour of usuals trojans.
    It's not really important if it's not integrated in some AV's database.
    Generally, well known malwares (trojans, virus or spywares) are easily detected by good security scaners/resident modules.

    But for a complete defense, a system has to be protected against unknown threats.
    That's why prevention is as important as detection.

    But as often, the first line defense is the knowledge:
