ESET VB100 Number 76

Despite the challenge of a brand new platform in the form of Windows 8, products generally performed well in this month’s test. December’s VB100 comparative sees ESET VB100 win #76. According to Virus Bulletin, this test had a close to normal pass rate. However, with a full 1/3 of all participants failing to win a VB100 award this time around, it is our opinion that there was a much higher failure ratio than we normally see. ESET VB100 Win #76 Actually, eleven out of the thirty-three products tested were not able to win VB100 awards this time around. ESET continues their streak – VB100 #76 was in the bag! ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 scored another VB100 award in the final Virus Bulletin test of 2012. In a test with some 33 participants, ESET once again received top award of another VB100 win. The most notable failures this test included FileMedic, FilsecLab Twister, and K7 Computer (plus a few other vendors). Norman failed with a single false positive. VirusFighter Pro missed some WildList entries. RoboScan missed WildList threats. FileMedic made a fairly major number of false positives (46). Meanwhile Filseclab Twister racked up only 5 false positive results. ESTsoft ALYac and BeyondTrust Blink Professional failed on WildList misses, and Commtouch Command from Commtouch (formerly Authentium) missed out with 3 false positives. ESET NOD32 Antivirus has achieved more Virus Bulletin VB100 Awards than any other product. In order to get awarded, product must detect all In-the-Wild viruses while reporting no false positives. ESET NOD32 has never missed an In-the-Wild virus. Original Article
