So...?
With the number of samples, this "test" is basically  useless - just as many others. If you performed the same with a million of samples, then it might have some value.

Sorry, but I simply can't get excited these armature youtube undocumented tests.

We have just had more controversy than interest in another such topic resulting in it being locked. The poster seemed more interested in their youtube views count.

Why give this forum spammer the oxygen of publicising his youtube links, please remove them.

People (who performs "real tests to AV's" and post them on youtube), i have an advice:
Just stick with Virus Bulletin and AV Comparatives results and be happy.

Also... can someone close this? Thanks.
