Discussion in 'other anti-malware software' started by bellgamin, Aug 10, 2020.
Thanks for your report. The FP has been fixed.
Thanks for your info. We had contacted Skd Labs more than one year ago. The testing fee is a bit high for us at present.
Are we talking about a 4 digit or 5 digit value?
5 digit value...
For the past couple of weeks I have been testing various security suites (more then a dozen types) including wisevector stop-x (tested 3 times against 1000s of zero-days and other malwares) and all even tweaked it to the max protection. So-far it is good but not offering a solid protection. But keep up the good work.
Good job buddy
these were personal tests and by far the one that constantly offer complete protection and detection among all those I tested and re-tested was "Forticlient for windows". Just if you curious to know. My hat is off to forticlient for their solid security suite.
Thanks for your time to test WVSX!
I will try and test it again. Is there anyway you would like me to re-test it. here is my test machine spec.
I use fresh zero days malwares from virussign: ~ Link Removed As Per Policy ~.
I am using a Virtualbox VM in linux mint. installed windows 10 pro
I use comodo cleaning essential to check for running infection and I use hitman pro to scan for remains
I always tweak the security app to the highest setting.
Also I sue URL haus database: ~ Link Removed As Per Policy ~ for online malware links download
So you're saying that WVSX didn't offer good protection? Can you perhaps say how many samples did it miss?
I meant its comparable to the rest. I do a very restrictive and tough test. Anything not achieving 100% detection and removal, I consider it not perfect or good for me. During my several tests of wisevector-x it offered between 95% to 99% protection and thats great compared to a-lot of other security suites or software. But for me only a very few and only one among all those I tested that repeatedly reached the 100% (forticlient) and I am using it myself on my gaming rig. This is because if even one malware get through then you maybe screwed and what good is protection if even one makes it through and infects your pc. So WVSX is a great security software compared to all the rest and even paid ones. This is my philosophy that anything less the full 100% I will not use it myself. I hope this explains it.
While detection rates vary from one product to the next, no antivirus provides 100% protection. However, if you keep your system updated and are careful about what files you open, it will be really hard to get infected, no matter what antivirus you use.
true and that is why I constantly test to see which has the best result. If I find something better then I change to that. So-far in the categories that are important to me such anti-malware, zero-days, anti-exploit, browsing filtration, HIPS, sand-boxing and nay security product giving the full protection is the one I choose. Also no security product can offer protection against all several millions of malwares out there, but by testing against as many malwares I can, that way I find which blocked everyone one them or removed. In that sense that is 100% achievement for me. But my suggestion is using linux or Chrome OS or even better a read-only linux flashed live on a USB stick.
WVSX blocked installation of OpenHashTab installer: Heur.ML.PE.A
Is it a FP?
I have uploaded the file ...
will blackfog be in conflict with wisevector ramsomware module, blackfog has ransom and in-memory protection and powershell monitoring
OK that sounds pretty good to me. You said it wasn't "solid protection", so that's why I wondered.
Yes, it's a FP which has been fixed. Thanks!
Yay! I use it too.
Thanks for your info.
Can you please tell me how many samples were missed in your test? What are the types? Maybe some of them can run and be actually malicious only in a certain condition.
I am a member at virusign and their samples usual range from over 100 to over 1000 and sometimes several 1000. I use their fresh the same days zero-days. The samples are made of different types of malwares but the majority are Trojans. If you want I can test it again now with their latest (todays malware sample and tell you)
Info about the sample I am going to test.
new sample: 381 (Date: Feb 21, 2021; 8:48pm EST)
Old samples: 1060 (Date: from Feb 12, 2021 and earlier)
Test machine: Linux mint using windows 10 pro 64bit (windows defender fully disabled)in virtual box.
Malware running / infection detection via killswitch by CCE (comodo cleaning essential) and Hitman pro
wisevectorstop-x setting changes:
Heuristic set to aggressive
Action on threat detection set to quarantine
document protection is enabled (checked)
On-demand scan: New samples ( 1 malware(Virus) was undetected ), Old samples ( 4 malware(3 Trojans and 1 Virus) was undetected )
Proactive test (running the remaining undetected samples): 2 trojans from the old sample ran fine and infected the system. 1 virus and 1 trojans from old sample and 1 virus from new samples were detected by WVSX and removed.
Thanks a lot!
Can you please send the 2 trojans which infected the OS to email@example.com? Then we can have an analysis.
sorry. I have reset the vm and I can not send malwares over the net since its illegal and also the links are properties of virussign ( can not break my obligation to them) and you can register for free accounts there and get access to 1000s of malwares to test. just type virussign in google and you get the links.
OK. I see. Thanks!
