Introduction to the VB 100% award
The VB 100% logo is awarded to anti-virus products that:
Detect all In the Wild viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning in Virus Bulletin’s comparative tests.
Generate no false positives when scanning a set of clean files.
Virus Bulletin’s aim is to offer subscribers the best impartial advice about anti-virus security and the products on offer. The VB website lists the outcome of comparative tests as follows :
a summary of the most recent comparative test
As the virus threat is continually changing, you should look for products that have achieved a succession of VB 100% awards, rather than just one or two. Developers that can best keep their products up to date are more likely to receive VB 100% awards.
Virus Bulletin’s tests are widely recognized within the industry. The comparative tests tend to focus on virus detection rates, scanning speed and, more recently, performance overhead of on-access or resident scanning components. Most people want a scanner with very good detection that is kept up to date, but few want one that turns their machine into a snail!
So, as far as I can tell the winner is ESET NOD32
Merry X-mas 2 All !
