    Has anybody tried this product? For those who do not know, it is free and uses its own in-house engine. I'm not sure on its overall performance (detection, cleaning, etc), though.

    It indeed consumes a lot of RAM but consumes very little CPU, less compared to many other AVs. So it may seem light in systems with min 2Gb RAM.

    If anyone reading this has actually used Zillya, I would greatly appreciate your opinion as to whether or not Zillya includes a behavior blocker as a component of its real-time scanner.

    I have used Zilliya and I am almost sure that there is no BB yet.

    10Q!

    I suspected as much. Ergo, Mamutu and Zillya might make *a dangerous duo*. :ninja:

    @Bellgamin Are you using Zillya! Antivirus?

    Does anybody know how good the detection rate is?

    You can check out this huge list of tested AV's Zillya included somewhere in the middle,
    test made by our own sg09 ;) posted over at Raymonds Forum.
    http://www.raymond.cc/forum/spyware...ifferent-av-with-old-malwares.html#post191367
    First set contains 500 Samples, Second set 5000 Samples.
    It's from last year but it gives you a hint of the detection rates.

    Edit: ClearCloud DNS users may not be able to get through as it is an .CC adress!

    Well I have not used this Anti virus because I am currently using Avast which is completely protecting my Computer from Malware and Virus . I would be happy if anybody would share their experiences of using it .

    I'm unsure if you want to talk about Zillya or Avast? :)

    If Avast then it would be better if you could start a new thread, or use the search function to find useful info.

    Lol..!! My test was a real armature test, it surely does not have much relevance as it was the on-demand detection test against old malwares. I should better point to this test,
    PCSL Total Protection Test (2010 July Report)
    Zilliya performed really poor there...:blink:

    Is there any recent tests? That other test is almost a year old, and Zillya has probably since impproved.

    Not that I know of.
    I said that the test was posted last year, and I also said that I posted it so you could get a "hint" of the detection rate.

    Not now. I tried it out for several days a while back. It's stable. Light on cpu but a tad heavy on I/O. However, for me to use a given AV on a long-time basis, it must have a configurable behavior blocker.

    Zillya! is not owned by Innovative Marketing. I think they branched off from IM a long while back.

    And have you not read the above posts? Or tested the product? :cautious:

    Okay..? It needs some improving, however, it does better against Ukraine/Russian-based malware. (Possibly) Like Rising and Kingsoft are with chinese-based malware. It is new to America and will improve as the year passes. Zillya has existed for some time, and most likely branched off from IM before it came to an end. One of the devs has an account here on Wilders, so you could probably tell you. There is a chance, however, that we could be wrong. For this reason, the correct research must be done.

    If you still a copy of those samples, I suggest sending them Zillya for analysis so they can label them as malware. They are working very hard to improve. And scareware isn't free, so isn't free upgrades from AV to IS (when the AV became free). ;)

    Nice test though. Panda ftw! WOOT! :D
