Excellent initiative and result speaks volumes to such combo. Very persuasive and formidable. Helpful challenges and appreciate the results and opinions.I have found no issues with the dumb detection routines as for in the wild malware there were samples caught by one and allowed by others but overall leading to additive protection. But the AI component of WV still impresses, and along with Comodo's auto-sandbox true zero day malware really don't have much of a chance. Last week I coded up a ransomware file loosely based on Ryuk (true zero-day) and although undetected by the dumb components, the WV AI after less than a minutes "thought" came back with a detection (potential.ransomware.A), detected and cleaned up my ransomware nor and some trivia dropped in AppData/Local). Poor malware didn't even make it to the sandbox.
(and regarding WF- seems not to matter if it is enabled or disabled as it neither helps nor detracts)
