I tested Ad-aware 10 Free & UnThreat Free as both uses Vipre engine, with 38 zeroday malware on real system XP SP3.
First I did a right click scan on 38 malware. The results were same for both Ad-aware & UnThreat i.e 13 malware missed. No probs with right click scan here.
Then I did execution test i.e I opened the folder containing 38 malware. The realtime component detected malware on opening the folder & left 16 malware. Executed all 16 & at the end 13 malware were left with both Ad-aware & UnThreat. So no probs with realtime rpotection too here.
The detection were same with both. UnThreat uses Vipre engine 4, any one know what Vipre engine Ad-aware uses?
Tested the same 38 malware with Avast 7 Beta. It missed 15 malware out of which 3 were autosandboxed, so it missed 12 malware.
Tested the same 38 malware with CAV. It missed 9 malware. All were either autosandboxed or got Unlimited Rights popups. One was found safe by cloud whitelist. Of the detected ones by CAV, 2 were detected by cloud AV & Cloud behaviour.
I also tested the same 38 malware with Avast 6. The difference between Avast 6 & 7 Beta was none. Only Avast 7 Beta autosandboxed 1 more malware compared to Avast 6.
Waiting for CIS 6 Beta & CCAV Beta.....
