    Thank you!

    Comodo finally disappeared from VB100.

    AVG, Avira, Kaspersky, Emsisoft, Qihoo - well above 90%

    Avast is at 90% only, I expected more

    Baidu is at 85%

    Outpost is below Microsoft :argh:

    IMHO, Proactive detection is more important than Reactive.

    I know I've asked before, but isn't this basically just an on-demand scan of a folder of malware?

    Says it's a Proactive and a Reactive test.

    But does it involve infecting computers with the malware, then attempting to detect it with the tested programs, or do they just scan a folder containing recent malware samples? IE real-world scenario vs. junk test.

    Robscan clumped in amongst the other Bitdefender re-brands.

    Reactive is scanning a pack of malware, proacitve is dealing with stuff it doesn't have a signature for - zero day malware. Anyone have a better definition?

    For each product entered for a review, we measure detection using our standard on-demand scanning procedure;

    Correct, IMHO.
    -------------------------------------
    The VB RAP (Reactive And Proactive) test has been running as part of the bi-monthly VB100 comparative reviews since February 2009. The test measures products' detection rates over the freshest samples available at the time the products are submitted to the test, as well as samples not seen until after product databases are frozen, thus reflecting both the vendors' ability to handle the huge quantity of newly emerging malware and their accuracy in detecting previously unknown malware.

    Procedures

    The RAP tests are run according to the following procedures:

    Don't know whether it is allowed to post this picture, but the proactive detection of "powered by" engines is often 10% less as the original, see Qihoo and Lavasoft vs Bitdefender of AVG vs Baidu, Robocop seems to be a positive exception

    Note also: eScan, seeing as this product uses BitDefender's own Active Virus Control as it's proactive protection component :D

    Hopefully the following info is meager enough to make it past the Intellectual Property policy especially since the data is months old and narrowly targeted and VB100 will release a Win7 Comparative in about 3-4 weeks as well it rectifies or clarifies the quoted information.

    In the December 2013 Comparatives PDF (yes, I buy them) for Win8.1, Lavasoft's Ad-Aware Free was down by 0.56% from Bitdefender's AV Plus on the Proactive Set +1 test. That's the one that comes closest to reporting a Zero-Day detection metric. Other metrics for LS vs BD varied by 0.00% for all in-the-wild to 1.06% down for the RAP Overall Average.

    Roboscan's Enterprise Solution was down 0.12% in the the Proactive Set +1 test and down 1.84% for the RAP Overall Average versus Bitdefender. But also 0.00% varaince for all in-the-wild.

    December was the first VB100 test with Lavasoft's Bitdefender implementation. Their previous Vipre based AV, tested under Win7 in August, lagged Bitdefender by 21% in their previous Proactive method.

    Cheers.
