It's a shame it did not go much better in testing like the other antivirus programs like Kaspersky and Biterdefender, which is a leader in this follow-up. Although I like Avast.

It's unfortunately Avast was compromised (in this test) however after using Avast for 20years it has passed my test: having never been infected/compromised while using Avast.

Have you been compromised on which part of this test?
do you know in which test he did not pass several stages that exist?

Well schmidthouse has said he has never been compromised, so the question isn't relevant to him.

Me, when it comes to tests for vulnerabilities, I have to actually lower my defences to actually allow the test to run and there is no way I will do that.  This is the reason to have multiple levels of protection over and above your AV.

As far as AV-Comparatives, it is one of the better AV testing sites. But I too believe in my own real world test as I haven't been infected in all of the time I have had Avast installed, over 14 years.

However, I don't simply rely on an AV or firewall for defence, you have to plan for the day that you might just get hit.  This means having a robust backup and recovery strategy if the dark brown stuff ever hits the fan.
