Av-Comparative Retrospective/Proactive Test May 2010
« on: June 08, 2010, 01:06:42 PM »
Hi everybody,
The Retrospective/Proactive Comparative test May 2010 is on line.

http://www.av-comparatives.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=144&Itemid=152

I think Avast should significantly improve its heuristic and behaviour detecton..

I do now believe that MSE is getting better and better.

I think MSE will surpass all AV's in the future.

Very asshamed for AVAST that i rely on Pro Active Defence. Very BAD!!!

Most pros advice MSE, ESET, Avira and Norton.

I think MSE will win because its free and good result.

They test avira premium which is paid.

I think avira free lack of pro active protection.

So ill vote for MSE.

I hoped that avast 5, with its new behaviour shield and heuristic, would have done better, but
looks like that behaviour shield is pretty useless in the current state :(

I think this test is NOT related to behavior shield... because this test was carried out WITHOUT executing malwares: tested only heurisic/generic detection, not behavioral detection.
BTW, I hope avast improve heuristic/generic ability.

no surprise - the tested version was one of the first stable v5 and it did not contain much more heur/gen detections than v4 yet...

btw: no antivirus performed very well, considering the scores near 80% in previous tests and ~60% now..

There will be always an excuse ::)
When we pass it good. We're the best!
When we fail. The test is not so good ;D

Keep improving.

I agree 100%. It is easier to make excuses than to improve.

Avast 5 is an excellent AV overall, but it does need improvement in this area.

I think Avast focusing on Program Version which fixing plenty of bugs and adding languages which they forgot to focus on Very basic function of AV's? Detecting, Removing and Blocking.

Im very sad to see the result.

Avast beaten by AVG which is crap!!!

The ugliest result ive ever seen!

False, Avira Free has the same scan engines then paid versions.

And with your statement, you don't think AVAST Software don't want to improve their software?  8) Of course they will improve the software, and for me, Maxx_originals post was not an excuse, but it was just facts :)

Bluesman: exactly.. not an excuse, just some facts about the testing... we're aware of the room for improvements and some steps have already been done (SuspBehav detections - ~3 weeks ago - they were not included in the tested version, dynamic translation used to detect new Sality - ~ a week ago, new winexec unpacker - ~2 weeks ago), more steps will follow.. btw: as kubecj already wrote - when someone detects 40% of new daily feed from virustotal e.g. then he's a "master of the clan", that's a reality.. Clementi's set must be somehow filtered, otherwise it would be impossible to achieve a detection of 60%, 80% etc..
