Hello and welcome to the Qihoo 360 test!

Qihoo 360 is a Chinese antivirus, quite popular.
Formerly partnered with Bitdefender & Avira, Qihoo now uses its own engines, and an engine named KuPeng, which I have activated.

The interface is relatively simple for novice users, even if several gadgets are present (like Tool Box, or cleaning tools which are for me, useless).
Qihoo has a firewall but it's impossible to configure it, you have to pay for it... (it blocked my VPN, I had to change the protocol)

As far as detection is concerned, Qihoo has a good reputation. It is fast, efficient and manages to detect malware.
But Qihoo relies too much on its Cloud... It's a good thing, yes, but unknown malwares are installed without reaction due to a low pro-activity...
The machine is infected by RemoteManipulator and another one that plays with PowerShell...
During the test, I accepted the installation of its web extension, it never reacted.

Qihoo can be recommended for careful surfing, but if you do risky surfing, skip it.

RAM Usage : Low
Malware URL test : 10/10 (All blocked)
Fake crack : 1/1 (detected)
Malware Pack : Remaining 15 files out of 216.
I expected more from him...
Qihoo relies too much on its Cloud, and doesn't react during execution.
Its firewall blocks 2 malicious connections, but it is too limited, you can't configure it or intervene in its free version...

Resistance to script attacks: Yes in detection, no in unknown malware

Result :
Qihoo : 1
NPE: 3 (2 files belong to VyprVPN - ignored)

Recommand : Recommended only if you are a careful surfer
System Clean : No system infected (RemoteManipulator)
