I agree with you, shouldn't be "another A/V comparison",  but now seems to be a monthly event for ESET, when it scores the worst among "big names"

It seems like ESET got lost in sophistication (UEFI scanner!!!!) but ignores the basics.

All I can tell you is that in the 14 years that I've been using ESET NOD32 Antivirus (not even the Internet Security with its firewall), I have never gotten a virus and I do visit all kinds of sites you can imagine. ESET's HTTP scanner automatically blocks any bad sites/connections. nuff said. Take these tests with a grain of salt. I for one, will never trust Microsoft with my computer's security and their heavy Windows Defender. http://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php?chart=chart4&year=2017&month=10&sort=1&zoom=2

I have been using various antiviruses for the last 10 years and MSE in the last 5 , and I also got ZERO infections.

And what???

Each and every month is the same situation on AV Comparatives, when ESET alone, from big players performs poorly, yet we are asked to "believe"

Enough with all kind of explanations....can we get results????

OK, according to their more detailed setup mentioned in the cumulative result (see itman's link in this thread), I think their testing methodology is fair, which means ESET could do better. :rolleyes:

Also take into account that there's nothing like 100% malware detection. Moreover, if you don't know details about the sample set and the methodology used,  you shouldn't make hasty conclusions. For instance I mean if CoinMiners were included in the test set and a particular tester scanned samples with default settings, they would be undetected even if otherwise recognized with the detection enabled.

All you have to do is consider the source.

According to John Alex  "we are asked to "believe"". I must have missed the religious sales pitch by ESET.

As Marcos said "there's nothing like 100% malware detection". That also hold true for everything that exists materialistically on this Earth. Any rational person known that.

Some folks like to change their A/V more often than they change their underwear.

Not my idea of a hobby (or worthwhile practice...changing A/Vs that is).:lol: 

John Alex  is just trolling (again). Please don't feed the troll, if you do it'll never leave.

I would like the AV testing labs to publish their income sources. I think it might shed some light on their testing methodologies. But I could be wrong.

Just another month and another AV test with the same non real world predictable results.

Seems like the results were predictable for all other players, except ESET....

The test procedures they disclosed are too vague from my perspective. Of course my interpretation of their test might be wrong, so please take my comment with a grain of salt.

The full methodology A-V Comparatives uses is given here: https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/avc_prot_2017a_en.pdf .

FYI - in this recent AV-Test comparative on Win 10, Eset did better than WD on real time protection: https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/windows-10/ . Also they tested ver. 10 and not 11 which has more protection features.

Bottom line - test results vary by AV lab depending on what malware samples are used at any given time and methodology deployed. This is why I always recommend one average AV lab test results to determine a given product effectiveness.

Have you seen this?

And this?  "We don't perform behavior blocking"

Yes, we have seen that somebody coded a keylogger and complains that it is not detected. If security software was to detect any future malware without updates, then why every AV would need to get updated on a regular basis to provide maximum protection? We kindly ask you to stop this as your behavior will be considered trolling and appropriate measures will be taken. You have a free choice in selecting the security solution that fits you best and that you are satisfied with.

Sir,

Pretending that you do not understand the issue , doesn't help anyone.

The guy coded a keylogger, created a HIPS rule , and expected detection from the newly created HIPS rule, but nothing happened.

For a HIPS rule to work,  you do not need "updates".

I complained 100 times so far , that in my years of using NOD32 , I never got an alert from HIPS, but you told me that is "normal"

Well, somebody smarter than me, proved otherwise....

"Interactive" is more sensitive than "Smart Mode"; in interactive mode you should get each and every possible alert from HIPS.

If you do not get it in this mode, you will not get it in "Smart Mode" either.
