    Kompas Antivirus designed to fight off all malware types especially to detect
    RATs, keyloggers, stealers, crypters, binders, spywares, worms and more.

    Just relying on a single vendor is not sufficient to completely protect you. You do need a second layer to make sure you are secure. Kompas Antivirus features simple interface to make it simple and easy to use.

    1. Work alongside existing with other antivirus software without any conflicts.

    2. Advanced heuristic techniques for detecting file infector viruses and VBS worms.

    3. Best USB Antivirus with advanced heuristic techniques for preventing the spread of malware through USB flash drive.

    4. The databases are regularly updated automatically with records of new threats.

    5. Unlike some free software titles, Kompas Antivirus will remove all threats for free.

    Download (Softpedia)

    VirusTotal scan results

    Youtube

    NOTE: They are no reviews that I can find about this product, 6 AV engines detected malware but it is most likely false positives. It would be best to test this in Sandboxie or virtual environment to make sure it is safe. Product has a Very Good (4.3/5) rating on Softpedia.

    This product is open for testers.

    Enjoy!! :D

    Never even heard of the product. Not sure why Trend counts it as something, I get a negative result.

    See screenshot below:

    There is no info on Eset's site about this detection, I'm thinking it has to be a false positive.

    I ran Kompas AV in Sandboxie and I did not find any suspicious behavior.

    Thanks. :D

    You must be using a much older version, the current version is 2.0.5.
    The images you posted says version 1.6. Maybe you need to test the latest version.

    Thanks. :D

    The product suppose to be used as a companion to your real-time AV not as a stand-alone AV, according to the vendor they focus more on the latest fake AV's and other rogueware commonly not detected by most AV's.

    It is kind of like MBAM Pro. Since it is fairly new, it will probably be awhile before it compares to the likes of MBAM Pro.

    It already has 237,870 malware signatures, that is very good for a new product.

    Thanks. :D

    Testing any security product with malware samples gathered from the web in malware packs will never show you the correct results of what that products can do.

    Many areas in the world have local malware infections that are not reported anywhere else. There are several local AV products in China and other parts of Asia which will protect against malware that no other global AV's can detect. Asia is the grand capitol of malware production and most malware infections never leave Asia. The possibility of users who use English getting these infections by chance is next to none.

    The best way to protect your system from getting these remote infections is don not install foreign language packs to Windows. If a malware is written in another language and your system doesn't include that language pack then it can not infect Windows. Use Google Translate to visit websites in other languages because it works on a cache which will usually prevent downloading malicious files.

    Most malware packs have no info about where the malware infections have been reported, if any at all. There are a lot of malware samples you can find on the web that never get distributed by chance, users would have to look for them and manually download each one.

    These kind of samples will give inaccurate results when testing security products with them.

    If there was a way to put localization on each malware sample then you might get a much better idea how well your AV could protect you.

    So these localized security products are very important to users in those areas because global AV's for example can not detect these local malware. If you live in the Indonesian areas, Kompas Antivirus might be an excellent option to use.

    Enjoy!! :D

    I have a question over it.As i live in india & 99% or more computer operates on english as window default lang.So in this situatation mostly local virus are written in english too so still Local AV's like Quick heal or k7 are better than Global AV's like KIS or BIS ?

    Thanks
