Why would we give any weight to this tin pot tree fodder?

I've seen their testing comparisions fall short of the mark. It's good
information to a point, but don't take them to the bank. An example is
test one program not designed to do the feature against another that
was. At any rate, these tests leave or give a false sensation of
security as all of the programs fail to achieve 100%. Such is not
possible as it is the nature of the game.

No one can put up a bullet proof shield and utilize the networks.
Otherwise, IT security teams wouldn't be needed. It is a constant
battle, and no one, especially in this group, has a handle on it. Best
to be prepared to recover.

no test is perfect, but they are both well regarded independent
testing organizations and both part of a committed effort to improve
the quality of anti-malware testing.

and since they both do whole product testing, the above example is
nonsense.

whole product testing, if you're not aware, is where they test the
entire product to see if any part of it would stop the malware.

this makes no sense. how do they give a false sense of security by
telling you the products *aren't* perfect?

That is a good point. I just don't think enough empahsis is given to the
shortcomings or alternatives to overcome them. They are /leaders/ in this
field and a lot of people use their ratings to make their choice of tools.

Then pay closer attention to them.



ESET gets worse every time they test.

i just checked the last 3 whole product tests performed by av-
comparatives, and your assertion is not born out by their reports.

perhaps YOU should pay closer attention to them.

You are a moron.



The New Zealand PC World March 2012 test report is a condensed

2011 av-test.org test.

thank you for finally answering the question i initially asked (who
actually performed the test?).

i don't love eset. i don't even use eset, so i certainly don't care
about how they score.

i care about people making decisions based on bad data, and magazines
have a history of producing bad data in this area. the exception is
when they contract out to a well regarded independent testing
organization to do the testing for them - such as in this case,
apparently.
