Have fun with Coranti, ladies and gentlemen
formerly MultiCore AntiVirus & AntiSpyware
4 Engines Anti-Malware product
What I cant figure out is if anti-virus is a dead/doomed tech,(And I have not used real time for a year or more save this sojourn with Prevx) why are so many head butting their way into the field?
It feels more "wide open" than "dead"
According to this website http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm there are an estimated 1.8 billion users around the world. It's a huge market and even a tiny fraction of that could mean quite a bit of money.
yep.agreeded. who wins?
Here's some screenshots from sofpedia
It even has a sandbox
How much memory it uses any one tried
It uses Norman Engine Sandbox which is more like a heuristic component than a full virtualization tool like Sandboxie.
I have only read very little of the website but noticed this:
"Coranti 2010 has four scan engines working in parallel and therefore, offers four times the
protection. However, it also means, that should
you already be running security software, there
is no need to uninstall it until you’re completely satisfied with Coranti‘s performance."
That's not something you should recommend, is it?
Here is the languy's review
Nice review but as stated by him it uses high memory usage, slow scans and zero day component
Gotta' say I agree. Mem usage is huge. This is just while running...no scan, no update, no nothing.
During a scan, it shot up a bunch more. Way too heavy.
I will say though it did pretty well in my tests of 20 malware links. Stopped all but one.
Are those are 0Day malware ? If you are sure that those are 0Day then its quite impressing result. But i have doubt on it....
Nothing personal but seriously i doubt on the same...
Japanese AV Didn't expect that
Well BitDefender is one of the better AV's to have included, always were good with trojans. As it's only a Beta, i've seen a lot worse recent tests from long established products. So if they can improve on the high overhead etc, then it might be one to watch.
They have included Bitdefender, Norman and what about other two's ?
Okay i have got it...
3. Norman With Sandbox
4. Lavasoft Ad-Aware Anti-Spyware
Looks fine, but right now i'm trying ThreatFire
You have already told us that you are using Threatfire @ Level 5, so why double post?
They were 0 day, yes. Taken from various sites I have that post malware each day. These were all links posted yesterday when I did the test.
And you doubt TheIgster? For shame...
Anymore thoughts on this beta?
No never in million years...How could i doubt on you? I just doubt on samples...
Well, posted that day, so they seemed to be effective samples that were reported as malware and found by many other AV's out there so...
Japanese?I thought it's Ukrainian AV
What's going on with this product?
It seems NuWave software is still operational at the Kiev address:
Now Coranti's site gives the impression that the company has no relation with NuWave. However, a whois lookup reveals this:
Interesting, isn't it? My guess is that these two companies may be sister companies rather than one and the same.
I just checked the latest VB RAP results from June and Coranti is way up now.
It's 4'th Best, beating Avira, Eset etc... to name a few.
So i'm just curious if anyone have tested Coranti lately?
