Raymond.cc user test with old Malware
PC help and news website raymond.cc has published an amateur test which results we do not want to keep quiet about. For the test two sets of first 500 and then 5000 samples consisting of almost two years old Malware files were created and 93 different products had to prove how many pests they could detect.
The 500 samples strong first set’s winner is Emsisoft Anti-Malware with a clean 100% detection – just Avira was able to detect all the threats aswell, while all the other products detected 9x% or even less.
Obviously the 5000 samples strong set 2 was more difficult for the security programs, as none was able to detect 100% here. But again Emsisoft Anti-Malware achieved the best result with 99.72%, in front of Avira Premium (99.22%), Twister (99%) and Kaspersky (98.48%). Surprisingly some very well known programs showed really bad performances like Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (3%) or Ad-Aware (58.44%).
Thanks for this very interesting test where once again Emsisoft Anti-Malware proved it is the current number one in Malware detection. Read the complete article with all the results here.
