i don't think tha AV Comparatives are too important ...

to understood what i mean read
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=199292
especially since http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=199292&page=7

it get's interesting where company experts explain why security companies bail out of AV comparatives due testset and methology mistakes etc ...


quite shocking (tho i knew some of it - i never paid closer attention to that mess around) ....

and in thread are mentioned some interesting numbers from russian virus tests and other infos ...

the opinion of bontchev about tests with large test-sets is known. he does not represent the position of f-prot as company. if you read the whole thread you will better understand who is just trying to discredit a test/tester and why.

suddenly IBK's testbed is full of garbage files. Until recently, AV-C tests were considered to be reliable by the industry, with garbage files kept to a minimum. im sure the top-scorers just recieve the dvds from IBK and just add them all to their database. 20 minutes work, simple and scores high in the test.

I can't believe it ::)

Heh, why ppl always jump so fast on "garbage" files as soon as they fall behind competition. It's not like you can "desinfect" trojans and break them like it used to be in the file infectors era, DSL and cable connections are now almost 100% error free compared to crappy 56k full of errors and packet loss. Where the hell all these "garbage" comes from? If you ask me it's just an lame excuse for AVs that suck and just can't get over that fact. Why can avast! score good, yet ALWIL guys still sometimes have slow samples adding and similar administrative problems, Dr Web which has oh and so heuristics, hourly updates and god knows what is still worse in lots of points?
Same for F-Prot. Long history and developement, recently a very good dev joined their team, yet they still just can't make any visible progress. Then there is AVIRA on the other side, lets face it, they were pretty lame like year and a half ago, AntiVir 6 was like ancient software with it's non incrimental updates and quiet crappy detection. But look it now, probably the best heuristics, they offer hourly updates and they've beaten pretty much all vendors hands down in pretty much all tests done to date. Why can AVIRA actually show the progress and improvements and others can't? Garbage files, right...
Same goes for avast!. It's not THE best but constantly achieving ADVANCED rating and also improving in proactive field without any heuristics does show that devs can keep up a certain level of quality. Garbage files pheh...

Yep, a  2.36% increase (compared to the last [August 07] test) is not bad indeed...
If we keep this pace, we're going to detect 99.96% in the next test... ;D
