Avast passes one test fails the other?
« on: July 14, 2004, 10:13:09 PM »
I noticed avast did not pass virus bulletin, 100 %  award for xp pro=

http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/archives/products.xml?avist.xml

But did pass ICSA  certifeid test. =
 http://www.icsalabs.com/html/communities/antivirus/certification/certprod.shtml

What is the difference between these two tests?

I have hear that ICSA test are very affidable... but the VB is too sensibile to $$$ :-)

notme, can you search the board for the word 'Bulletin'?
Well, sorry, it's not personal, but I'm becoming tired of this ICSA issues  :(
There are a lot of things that make us not believe in these tests, at least, deeply  :P

Sorry Technical , to have touched a nerve there, if you CAREFULLY read my post it states AVAST PASSED the ICSA test . Bye the way GREAT JOB for doing so AVAST team, All I wanted to know was, what is the difference = paramaters , tests used etc.. between the  2 testing companys ? As far as I can tell they are the 2 most noted AV testers who all AV companys seek there recognition , or certification from.
  I am no way slamming AVAST or yourself. I apologize for any hard feelings created. Feel free to delete this post.
 I will not post in the future thanks notme...

Notme, never mind, I was upset yesterday  ;)
Your question is ok, let's see the answers. You don't have to apologyze. As I wrote before, it is not a personal matter. I know that in previous forums someone posted the differences between tests... maybe you can search the board a little.

Take care  ;)
