Emsisoft Anti-Malware score on VB100 April 2010 comparative

It’s been the first time for Emsisoft Anti-Malware to participate at the Virus Bulletin VB100 comparative. They have tested Anti-Malware 5.0 Beta, which had some troubles during onAccess scan test, so VB decided to test only the scanner capabilities. Badly, it was not enough to get the VB100 award, but the detail test results are remarkable:

On demand scan:

  • Wildlist: 99.95% (actually a bunch of virut replications were not detected)
  • Worms & bots: 99.81% (rank 4 out of 60)
  • Polymorphic viruses: 78.59%
  • Trojans: 98.29%
  • False positives: 1

Reactive and proactive (RAP) detection:

  • week-3: 99.13%
  • week-2: 99.42%
  • week-1: 97.92%
  • Reactive average: 98.72% (that’s the best score of all 60 tested products!)
  • Proactive week+1: 71.30%
  • Overall average: 91.87%
