Only weakness i can see is polymorphic malware. Other results were good enough.

I see a lot of Advanced+ ratings but avast! is still only at Advanced.
The good thing is that avast! isn't rated as Standard as some of the others are.
This does indicate however that Alwil has some work to do to reach the top.

There are a lot of Advanced+.
I hope in the future will be A+.
But, there are A+ eat your resources.
I prefer a lighter good Av and no an A+ slow down my little machine :D

the poly module is a part of VPS and its first release was at the beginning of august (unfortunately after last comparatives deadline).. new detection capabilities bring a fixed detection of Parite virus, new detection of Driller/Tuareg (from Clementi's set), Allaple and Sinowal worms and a few others - you can see the VPS release details (the last one added was Win32:Tibser)... the detection of new Virut variant (spreading within last two weeks) will come asap and then will follow others (Cheburgen, Detnat etc).. ;)

Vlk,
When and how will any of this additional protection be available to us ?

Bob... Vlk is saying that he does not want to make a predict or a schedule... I'm sure he will answer that these features will be available as soon they're finished and we (the forum guys) will be the first to test it...
Besides this, the polymorphic malware module is 'inside' of VPS so it is already available to us.

Hello.
I'm new to the forum and I'm using Avast Home.

A few questions/comments especially about the latest av-comparatives test.
I am a bit concerned about the poor showing by Avast in the polymorphic category.
I understand that this is already being addressed through updates(VPS)?
Is there a new version on the horizon?
If so,I'd like to be a beta tester.

It's being addressed by VPS. Although, we must expect further improvements on version 5.

Is there a new version on the horizon?
Yes. Version 5 is being baked to early next year.
Until there, there will be minor improvements on version 4.7.

If so,I'd like to be a beta tester.
Beta phase is released to forum users only, like you. Welcome.

Thanks for the quick replies Tech.
It's good to hear that Avast is addressing the polymorphic issue with updates now rather than just waiting for a later version.

I have read on the forum that Avast 5 will have heuristics.
That's an excellent idea!

Looking forward to beta testing next year.

Why don't you enjoy the forum until there?
There are a lot of experience and knowledge to share, not just on avast, but in all security and applications fields.

tuareg: 62,5%

the rest of the ones from clementi's set is currently unchanged.
