Technically speaking, bullguard did not do that badly. It only allowed 0.7% of the samples to compromise the test system. It is positioned near the end because it requires the user to make a decision for quite a lot of cases.These tests are always good for a larf
Amazed how Bullguard have fallen so much.
They do publish their methodology: http://www.av-comparatives.org/testing-methodology/Do those guys at those at AV Comparatives expect me to believe that? I've read enough code and I've spent enough years sitting on a chair typing to know that these tests are nothing more than a money-fed up, bizarre tests. We don't know what they do behind the scenes, we don't know what they do while "testing" a product, we do not know what contract they've made with the AV companies. Can you guys trust my following sentence?
"I am a computer expert. I'd like to tell you that Nano Antivirus is better. It performed excellent in my tests, I own an AV test company named Super Nano Antivirus Technology Inc. Ltd.©™℠ ® which is a multiple-billion dollar$ company. Can you install it from www.referencedbysupernanaoantivirustechnologyfornanoantivirus.com? Thanks. *shows stat*.
You have to see the settings that they used. More often than not, vendors will request them to tweak certain settings from the default, which may explain the discrepancy when you test the products yourself etc.eset is lower than avg and e-scan?!
bitdefender 0 Fp?!
oh my god!
Good job Avira
