Why Comodo missed that many samples in the very first scan??? I guess Comodo is not flexible enough. Isn't it strange to scan the same folder twice to detect all the malwares??? I wanted to see the tests with the default settings coz most people go with the defaults. And he should also check some of the remaining samples with the realtime protection. He didn't mention anything about the malwares, they were new/old/very old/old-new. By the way a simple & good test.

Thanxx

first point is, that avira wasnt set to scan all. it was set to scan "smart extensions" in scanner section.

and comodo was tested WITH its online look up.

so, we cant say that comodo is better from this test, because who wants that his antivirus loads stuff into the internet for a scan? and, who scans the same files 3 times?
and who tests an antivirus while using exceptions in extensions?

for the people who wants their antivirus to use a scan cloud, it is a good result.

apart from the needed 51 minutes to find less of the threats. while avira needed 6 minutes to find a lot more.

Hey guys, a friend of my just told me about these 2 videos. It's a video about a on-demand Av test. Comodo Av, Avira, and Avast! are tested. He used a total of 10K samples.

You can find part 1 and 2 here:

Part1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRreh8G4bLw&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
Part2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbtdeIFcTfc&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

The end result was that Comodo Av found 98,19%, Avast 94,39%, and Avira 98,06%.
This clearly shows the Comodo Av is actually very strong, especially with it's new cloud abilities:)
I know BTW that one test doesn't mean a Av is good ore bad, but with 10K it's very interesting to watch :-TU

[at]webbie146. Yes, Comodo is going from strength to strength, and this is not the only test i have seen lately, that clearly sets Comodos Av  detection rate wise above Avira, and Avast. Comodos would at the moment be probably sightly lower than the likes of Emsi /A squared or Gdata, but not much else.

This will change according to Melih who stated that when Dacs hits the internet soon, then Comodo will have the best detection anywhere. However, i have said this before. Until Cavs is tested by the likes of Av Comparitives, then those that seem to think that site as the holy grail of testing, will not in my opinion take it entirely seriously.However those in the know do not just look at detection as the be and end all, they look at prevention also as the first line of defense, and THERE IS NONE BETTER AT THE MOMENT THAN Comodos suite.

Regards
Dave1234.

I don't see the problem with enabling the cloud component? It's enabled on my PC, and works great. Sure scans are a little slower, but i don't care if a scan takes 10 min longer..

so, we cant say that comodo is better from this test, because who wants that his antivirus loads stuff into the internet for a scan?

I have actually never heard this argument before, a lot of Av's do it. Panda cloud for example, and actually plenty of others out there. I think it's a great future, for a enhanced detection rate :-TU

At least Comodo was better, sorry :)
Ok, but what would happen when tester run some of the viruses?
Avira would not detected great amount of them - Comodo with Defense + and Sandbox catch 99.9% of malwares.

In summary Comodo is better in prevention.

hello? what was tested? oh, yes, i see the antivirus.
so why do you put things in place that have nothing to do with an antivirus program? defense+? sandbox? what?

how many virusparts were left after comodos 50 minutes odyssee?
how many were left after 6 minutes of avira running with extension exceptions?

if you look at the facts, then comodo wasnt the best in this test.
this doesnt mean that it loses :)

its no bug. its the cloud that decided while the first scan time what is a virus and what not.


btw, isnt it strange that the cloud simulation didnt detect all malware? that it sends you back an OK for a virus?

in reallity you dont have a folder which shows you that a virus wasnt detected. in reallity you would trust your antivirus even more than healthy, because its a cloud(!).... and after scan you would execute this virus that was "proven by cloud" no virus. then defense+ doesnt help you, because you start that program. you should be protected of permanent infection when it runs in a sandbox.

I didn't really start this thread with the intention to show everyone that Comodo Av is the best Av ever. I just thought they were interesting video's, that show the Comodo Av is actually very good. Also if the cloud comes back with a response like ''this file is not malicious'' it doesn't mean it won't get sand-boxed anymore. Comodo will still sandbox the file, and D+ will obviously monitor everything.

Just because a file get's scanned in the cloud doesn't mean the detection rate will be 100%. It's expected that not all files scanned by the cloud will be detected. That's why CIS got a sandbox/hips.

And for giving away data... yeah maby you want to disable it if your really big about your privacy. Comodo just analysis the file, it's not like the go ''o wow guys check this file, cool info eh?".
