Malware Research Group Flash Tests 2011

Recommended Posts

This is a copy of the last posting I'll make in another thread, Mrg Flashtest 2011, which due to timing began with a different focus.

I'm beginning this thread to concentrate and unify postings on this unique and highly valuable series of tests (unlike another member posting up separate inconsistently titled threads every time he happens to stop in at the MRG Web site).

Since that other thread, things have changed for the better as you can see...

 

Since January and after 52 zero-day samples, Immunet Plus is approaching a 60% pass metric and is better than BitDefender itself at 40%. Astute observers will note Immunet picks up in detections when its BitDefender powered Tetra engine fails. Kudos to Immunet's Cloud and ClamAV.

 

Excluding Norton, Emsisoft and Vipre, Plus now surpasses all other stand-alone AV suites which are multi-layered batteries including firewalls, proprietary behavior blockers, browser extensions and URL/IP white/black lists.

Cheers.

This post of yours is a duplicate from another thread, so I repeat my reply again:

I have studied the attachment, that was interesting, but one field of great importance is missing: "False Postives". "False Posives" in quarantine (especially System files) are often more dangerous for the computer system than normal "Malwares"!

Cheers,

Immunet continues to rock the MRG Flash tests, hitting detections even when Bitdefender fails.

 

Now running about 15-20 percentage points ahead of some of the big-shot AVs and suites and on par with others!

 

My latest spreadsheet compilation...

Enjoy!
