Unbiased Detection Tests

After recieving my 1 year license from Meliah Im a firm believer in CIS v4.1 Complete. I think it has the potential to do great things. However Im having issues finding unbiased, legitimate detection tests and reviews on Defense + and the AV engine.

Can anyone point me in the right direction or post some links?

The AV hasn’t been tested by a reputable company yet. The closest we have is Malware Research Group (http://malwareresearchgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/MRG-On-Demand-Scan-Test-april-2010.pdf). This is the last test conducted before MRG and Comodo split paths.

However, it is supposed to be tested in the next round of AV-Comparatives.

As for Defense+ I only know of one place that tests HIPS. This is matousec. Here’s the link:
As you can see CIS did the best.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Gizmo criticizes the Matousec tests, the results and the conclusions.

(please, to comment, read Gizmo first…).

Im familiar with Matousec and its horrendous testing. Its ONLY a HIPS test and it has a horrible method at that.

Im also familiar with MRG, but when I searched for CIS it failed to return any results. Thanks for that link.

Yes, I’m not very happy with the methods they use. The problem is that it’s the only HIPS testing site that I know. The largest problem is that they do not test the products against real malware but against leaktests.

I personally have tested the newest version of CIS against 20-30 zero-day malware and I’m happy to say that none of them were able to infect my system or do anything malicious. In fact the worst thing that one of them did was eat up my CPU, but the rest were either non-active or just dropped files that couldn’t do anything.

The link I posted links to a PDF. It’s listed under Comodo. It appears you can’t search for it, but scroll down and find the results. They’re on page 3.

im waiting till the av comparatives tests for anything definite btw comodo ftw

There are numerous tests they can get in on that would be worthy of making a definitive decision.

i totally agree with you…comodo needs to get in on this stuff

Another vote for av comparatives.
