Really this is very pathetic condition of Avira . Shame on avira team . I personally liked avira but after saw this kind of weakness we should stay away from avira .
maybe it's new variant, there are several new variant of wannacry and it gets more and more, Avira must change, great signature but lack on zeroday. Avira should have whitelist features. I can't see better protection other than default-deny
its a known fact that avira is one of the weakest when it comes to ransomware or zeroday threads. Tested it over and over again. But here is one guy on malwaretips that thinks Avira is the best av in the world and beats every other av easly. Hope his mind changes in the future when he is able to get facts right. Avira has one of the best Signatures avaiable with Eset and Kaspersky but thats it. The zeroday protection is just realy weak.
I cant describe my satisfaction when wannacry bypassed Avira. My first though was Xsjx
I have a 1year license for Trend Micro. that's why I'm considering it. but I have bad memories about it when I used it 3 or 4 years ago. It slowed my rig too much. so I'm just curious what reputation of Trend Micro now.You said trend micro without even thinking the consequences.... How about CF?
I think trend micro is about the same or even weaker than avira pro. I don't recommend it. It was tested by in MT Hub and I could see it was struggling a lot
any day that I pursue the news and security industry, testing different methods, vendors,.. . I'm thinking more that big companies bring better security in this circumstances, trend micro , Kaspersky, Symantec and other big names I believe that are somehow better than the others. more resources, more budget for R&D more technologies. although I think for a skilled user default deny is the best solution but we are talking about normal users.
