    Default Emsisoft Anti-Malware only one to detect all malware in independent MRG Test

    The independent Malware Research Group started an interesting series of tests on September 1.
    19 well-known security programs were challenged to a "duel" with ten of the most dangerous and
    widely spread Malware pests.

    At the start of September 2010 the Malware Research Group confronted 19 well-known security programs with 10 hand-picked types of widely spread Malware. These Malware programs were the latest versions of well-known pests and were all classified as highly threatening.

    The result of this test was a surprise. Many well-known established protection programs did not detect certain Malware. The bottom line was that the Malware won most of the duels:

    - HotKeysHook Keylogger (9 x detected / 10 x not detected)
    - TDL3 Rootkit (8 x detected / 11 x not detected)
    - TDSS Dropper (3 x detected / 16 x not detected)
    - FakeAV Trojan (3 x detected / 16 x not detected)
    - Zbot Trojan (7 x detected / 12 x not detected)
    - FakeAlert Trojan (7 x detected / 12 x not detected)
    - VLogger Trojan (5 x detected / 14 x not detected)
    - Neeris Worm (8 x detected / 11 x not detected)
    - “Here You Have” Email Worm (19 x detected / 0 x not detected)
    - Zbot Trojan retest (12 x detected / 7 x not detected)

    Only one program detected all pests without exception: Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

    hi !


    once again Emsisoft Anti-Malware (EAM), previously known as a-squared (a2), "wins" an antimalware test.

    more info about previous awards: a-squared Anti-Malware Tests and Reviews

    there is also a FREE version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware without realtime-protection: Emsisoft Anti-Malware - Best protection against Viruses, Trojan Horses, Spyware, Worms, Dialers, Adware, Keyloggers and Rootkits
    you can test the FULL version for 33 days, then it turns into the FREE version.

    Emsisoft Anti-Malware (EAM) can be used together with most other Antivirus / Antimalware-programs, although you (might) have to change the settings for the "FileGuard".
    fx. EAM & MSE v2-beta works very well together, i´ve been testing those 2 with different settings for several weeks.

    Let's start with the wording of Subratam's blog post on the Emsisoft blog:

    The infamous Malware Research Group has been running a couple of single malware detection tests since September 1st. {bold added}
    Next, let's define "infamous", from define infamous - Bing DICTIONARY:

    1. notorious: having an extremely bad reputation
    2. abominable: so bad as to earn somebody an extremely bad reputation
    3. criminal law punishable by serious penalty: formerly, punishable by imprisonment or loss of civil rights

    Synonyms: notorious, disreputable, ill-famed, ill-reputed, dishonorable, scandalous, shameful
    Synonyms: abominable, villainous, wicked, iniquitous, loathsome, outrageous, evil, shameful, nefarious, ignoble, heinous
    From the perspective of what has been posted at Wilders and DSL Reports, it appears that the adjective "infamous" isn't far off the mark. A couple of examples from Wilders:

    MRG Rogue Software Test - Wilders Security Forums
    New MRG Test #20 Real Time Test - Wilders Security Forums

    In addition, reputable companies do not generally hide behind Domains by Proxy: WhoIs Search Results
