The test might be more relevant if it was testing the current new release.

Exactly which is why it's rather pointless posting results of an old version.

As Bob said they aren't from avast.

Spoofing, social engineering emails are nothing new, the only thing that changes are the company names to trick the user.

Users have to be aware that not everything that they receive is genuine.

Whoa!  I had never seen Symantec do this horrendous before.  There seems to be way too much disparity from how I've seen it do before.  I mean, it's double trouble because of being in last place in missed samples and last place in false positives.  It's almost too horrendous to be true.

A friend of me uses Norton 360 from Symantec and his laptop is completely messed up with malware.
