Default Miyuki's Antivirus Software Test

Just some antivirus testing by myself, and using some of the malware links that I found in the internet.

Rather than reading those reviews made by some sites...I decided to try the antivirus software myself since...it's hard to believe if you didn't even try it yourself. And probably some of those "review comments" were being "paid" anyway...so, yeah.

Anyhow, the antivirus software I tested are those freeware andtivirus such as AVG, Avira and as well commercial antivirus software such as Kaspersky, Norton Antivirus.

I've tested them using virtualization software, and not on a real machine. And it's not advisable to do the real test on your own actualy machine, unless you've other pc to play on.

This is purely tested on my own, and not some copies from other website. probably there's some other antivirus software I missed out, but you can suggest me to try on it, and I'll try to test them.

This might helps on those members who kinda confused or not sure which antivirus to try/buy.

Well...actually I was..bored, so why don't I just try them up ;x

Setup:

Host PC
Quote:
- AMD Phenom X4 2.3Ghz
- 2GB RAM
- Windows 7 64 bit
- Sun VirtualBox
Virtualization environment setup:
Quote:
- Intel/AMD Compatible running on only 1 core.
- AMD-V, Nested Paging enabled.
- Windows XP Pro SP 3, fully updated.
- 512MB of RAM
- Resizeable HDD space.
Tools I used:
Quote:
- Sun VirtualBox - VirtualBox
- BootRacer to measure the boot-up to desktop time. - BootRacer - Test your Windows boot speed
Free Antivirus
Commercial Antivirus
The Malware
Quote:
- Trojan-Clicker.Win32.Liah
- Trojan.Win32.Sasfis.uoo
- HTML/Infected.WebPage.Gen
- Web exploits
- Web exploits
- Trojan-GameThief.Win32.OnLineGames.vuez
- Trojan.Win32.Refroso.qng
- RogueAV
- Trojan-Downloader.Win32.CodecPack.kgo
- RogueAntiSpyware
- Website exploits, spyware/trojan [rootkit]
- W32.Downloader
Please take note, I tested this inside virtualization [VirtualBox], it's like a sandbox where you can just deletes/reverts to original state once you've finishes your work.

Also, the bootup time might be vary to different computers.

Conclusion:
Quote:
Fast detection rate, can block drive-by downloads so user won't accidentally download the wrong/malware files, also able to block web exploit websites as well. User can register for the free key via their website, slightly higher memory usage due to it's web scanner, hopefully it will be improved on their next version [still in beta atm]. The user interface might not be that fancy, and might annoys some users, but they can replace it with custom skin, next version should have better skin than this one. Recommended antivirus software for most of the users that wanted free and yet better protection, if can put aside the memory usage for the webscanner feature.

Quote:
Pretty fast detection rate and heuristic detection, prevented users from installing rogue software. It's recommended for those who need antivirus protection yet it's free. Although the downside for the free version that it doesn't have web scanning, so probably users will be exposed to some web exploit sites. Also, users might get annoyed by the nag screen that asks you to buy paid version, and also sometime the update server is unavailable.

Conclusion:
Quote:
Hopsurf bar, as other typical linkscanner bar alike, and added some search engine as well..tho normally user will opt-out from installing it.
Strong detection and Defense+ feature as well, but lacking in Threatcast function and confusing users on what should it do...but isn't antivirus supposed to ...delete the malware automatically instead of asking users to allow it or block it? The notification screens and pop-ups will make some users confused, whether it's a malware or trusted software. Only for advanced/pro users, and not recommended for newbie computer users.

Fine detection rate, although doesn't prevent rogue software from being installed and also lack of web exploit protection. Probably they need to improve on these field for time being. Also, this antivirus from Microsoft only installs on Genuine Microsoft Windows, with passed Windows Genuine Validation.

Quote:
Decent detection rate, but it's late to protect the user. There's a logo of bear...lion...or was it tiger on the Windows Logon/Shutdown screen [ok, it's a lion, the website says so]. Installer is outdated, and user have to update it [via update function] to the latest version, so user might be exposed if they didn't update the antivirus before using the computer. There's some confusing file naming, for an example "RavMonD.exe" would leads to LoveGate virus when you google it, but actually it's a part of the antivirus itself. Doesn't protect windows files system from being modified, and totally slow detection rate, where it detects the malware after already being installed. Not recommended.

Big brother of the security industry, ask anyone they'll surely recommends Kaspersky to you. Fast detection rate and able to block drive-by malware. Kaspersky update process might take sometime, I hope that will be fixed. Additional Security+ module will analyzes your current web browsers and applies some "fixes" to make them secure. Highly recommended for those users willing to spend on paid version and to get the protection as well worth the money they spend.

Fast detection, and with SONAR detection as well. Norton Antivirus doesn't slows the system or using too much resources as it's predecessor. The Antivirus lack of what the Internet Security version offer, and have poorer performance than NIS version has to offer, probably user might want to get IS version for more better protection [somehow a marketing scheme?]

Nicely done Miyoo. Can't repped you cause I needa spread some, but yeah... x_x

Anyway, if I surf net carefully, then the web protection is not that important right?

If so, wouldn't Avira be better?

It should be fine, unless the website/page being hijacked by malware code then probably Avira won't able to detect properly [example like iframe exploit].

And not miyoo.

Wow, I'm really surprised Microsoft Security Essentials didn't detect as much as I thought it would, because I heard it's really good and stuff, I use it for some months now, and I love it, the simple interface etc.

Also, I knew that Avast would score better than others, but I got annoyed of it's messy interface. >:

What about testing BitDefender?

Yeah, I kinda surprised that it would perform poorer than other free antivirus software...probably some "marketing scheme"?

Sure, I'll give BitDefender [commercial] a try.
