Me too.

On the other hand, looking at most of the samples missed (especially in the Trojans category - by far the largest), I don't think we have a problem.

Moving forward, I think that Andreas (the person behind av-comparatives) will be putting more and more emphasis on the "dynamic" tests, and less and less on the traditional on-demand tests.  While on-demand tests are interesting to look at, they only exercise certain parts of the product and the results don't necessarily reflect the real-world scenarios.

In any case, congrats to Avira, they did fantastically this time.


Thanks
