It appears a similar posting and thread by possibily @novice forum alter ego @claudiu yesterday evening, was deleted by Eset mods; wisely so, I might add.

Here's the link to the AV-C article: https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/malware-protection-test-march-2019/

The 99.86% rate noted is for online protection. Note that three categories were established for testing purposes: offline detection, online detection, and online protection. Eset was certainly not in last place if all three category scores are factored.

And why is that? A moderator hiding a fact will not help ESET performing better.

I saw the post yesterday , being removed / hidden today and I wanted to investigate myself.

Yes, this is what is important.

That's why I paid for an antivirus, to be protected when I am on-line, not when my PC is OFF!

Obviously nothing can infect you if your PC is powered off.:rolleyes:

My reference and AV-C testing is for this instance. Any decent malware is going to try to tamper with your network connection online status for a brief instance while installing itself; more so today in the age of "cloud" detection by some AV products. It will then fully reestablish the network connectivity since it will in all likehood need it to connect to its C&C server.

I will say this about AV-C's online protection testing. If there is only a .14% deviation between the top and lowest scoring product, does comparative score ranking make any sense?

What AV-C needs to do is either go with a pass-fail ranking or do a better job at harvesting their malware samples.

Also of note is two previous test participants, Emsisoft and Bullguard, have dropped out of testing at AV-C. So it is evident, the outfit is having some issues.
