Suspicious Behaviour ?
Now on a m$ system trying to get some work done is classed as suspicious behaviour, whilst viruses, malware, trojans, gaming and script kiddie exploits are classed as normal. Sounds like it hit the mark ?
The test results suggest promising performance with signature based detection but the heuristics side needs a lot more work. I'd say a good start, and right that it's free.
If they really want to make the m$ world a better place, then illegitimate windo$e systems should be able to run it too to help clean up the botnets.
@mrweekender - you spotted the irony too ???? ;-)
@frymaster - tend to agree with you, but it depends on what you're using the machine for. For example, Banking ? YES. Pissing about watching youtube, perhaps not unless the firewall shows spurious traffic. If I was looking to hide shitware on a system, I'd go for the OS libraries for disk access and corrupt them, so an attempt to read sector xyz returns benign data, so AV software thinks everything is OK on a scan. Guess where I'd hide the shitware ? Probably much harder to do on a journalling filesystem like NTFS or ext3, so maybe what I'm saying here isn't realistic. But still, I'd say that's justification enough for wipe/reinstall if you suddenly get new detection after updating/replacing your AV software on an important or business critical system.
