    Emsisoft: epic fail. Failure reason: 974 wildlist misses, 1 false positive

    I was shocked to see so many unknown to me vendors and programs like SGA , SpamFigherVirusFigher , Quihoo , Bkav , Central Command , Prevention , Nifty , etc

    OMG , who uses the programs ?

    I just emails John Hawes and hope to receive a reply because I suspect a problem with the testing methodology (they are doing tests completely offline with installers and updaters ready to be installed offline?) . Will post again if he answers me.

    They are very fast . As I suspected all is done offline .

    I can now understand why Panda decided not to participate and I fully support them in this decision!

    With updating only signatures (once) , with no update on others proactive modules and behavioural analysis modules , with no internet connection , programs like Norton and Panda are unable to excel.

    That is why Norton's results on trojans are so low (97%) . I expected something like 99.99% :) but with no SONAR , with no Insight and other moderns stuff , it is plain signature scanning test .

    Very disappointed by VB .

    A2/Ikarus result was rather shocking to me. I assumed failure would be due to false positives and not due to an outrageous amount of sample misses.

    Qhioo 360 is the same AV Company where Xiaolin (Malware Defender's Author) got his new job...It uses Bitdefender's engine and it is based on cloud technology. It already passed last VB100 test too.

    surprisedly, a well- known antivirus with high detection-rate like a-squared missed a lot of samples.

    It shows Kaspersky 6 as failing. What still uses that version of Kaspersky.

    aint a-squared using Ikarus engine?
    :blink:

    but anyway im surpised that "1 miss" will lead to "fail" like Kaspersky, MSE and some others...
    (some explanation from inside might help, i'm no paid subscriber)

    Yikes 973 misses. Thankfully I have alot of layers under Ikarus. I might have to rethink my AV choice.

    As always Norton is nowhere in VB RAP.
    As always ESET and Kaspersky are great and close to eachother.

    MSE also not really good. Seems like AVG is really getting a serious consideration again and if you pick a free one you still should choose one of the 3 A's.

    Webroot, Ikarus, Sophos and Check Point (must be a great package together with the ZoneAlarm firewall) quite surprise me.
