So...are these tests really 'real world' given many of the AV companies have teams dedicated to passing these tests with the highest detection rates.

I believe the test methodology is referred to as "real-world" in the sense that they try to "mimic" (or how to put it) a real world usage situation, IIRC. But mimic a real world situation to 100% is impossible, though I think they do a fairly good job trying to make that happen.

 

Yeah, wasn't it Eugene Kaspersky that wrote about it, or was it someone else? I don't remember - quite a long time has past since I read about that.

Kaspersky Labs through Eugene stated they have a team dedicated to passing AV tests and likely the same for many AV vendors. Marketing and public perception wins out.
