    Independent certification body Virus Bulletin recently released the results of their latest rounds of VB100 tests. Once again, we’re happy to announce that Emsisoft Anti-Malware aced the tests and walked away with a perfect score! What is the VB100? The VB100 is a certification test designed to evaluate the detection capabilities of antivirus software. To perform the tests, each antivirus product is installed on a physical computer or virtual machine with specifications you would expect to find on a business PC. The products are installed with default configurations on a clean, dedicated instance of Windows. Each test is performed on two different systems, one running Windows 7, the other running Windows 10. The security products are then exposed to a range of malicious samples taken from various malware sets, including: The WildList set: A set of a few thousand samples curated by the WildList Organization. The AMTSO RTTL: The Real-Time Threat List is a continuous feed of 1,200-3,000 new samples collected by malware experts around the world and managed by the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization. The Diversity set: A set of 1,000-2,000 recent malware samples. The products also scanned a subset of 100,000 files taken from the clean sample set, which is a collection of 400,000 non-malicious files. To achieve VB100 certification, a security product had to be able to meet the following criteria: Identify at least 99.95 percent of malicious samples. Generate no more than 0.01 percent false positives. How did we do? We’re delighted to report that Emsisoft Anti-Malware achieved a perfect score in every category. Our flagship software identified 100 percent of the 2000+ malware samples used in the tests while generating zero false positives along the way, earning it VB100 certification. We’re pleased to see Emsisoft Anti-Malware excelling in test conditions, and we’ll continue working hard to provide the best malware protection on the planet! About Virus Bulletin Virus Bulletin a security information portal, testing and certification body based in the UK. VB100 certification tests are designed to assess the detection capabilities of endpoint security solutions. A product that has been awarded VB100 certification can generally be trusted to provide a certain level of protection against malware.

    Hallo Emsi-Geschäftsführung. Ich wollte gerade meine Lizenz für ein weiteres Jahr verlängern. Das hat leider nicht geklappt, weil ich kein Häkchen bei "Abonnement" gesetzt habe. So konnte der Bestellvorgang nicht beendet werden. Braucht Ihr Eure treuen Privatkunden nicht mehr? Dann sehe auch ich mich, allerdings ungern, nach was Anderem um, bspw. Malwarebytes.

    Hallo Emsisoft und hallo Thomas! Muss das Thema noch einmal aufgreifen: Hatte im letzten Jahr schon meinen Unmut zur Abo-Variante des Lizenzsystems kundgetan. Immerhin war da noch über die Mail von Cleverbridge eine umgehende Kündigung relativ einfach möglich. Vermutlich hat Emsisoft dies auch bemerkt und nun mit dem neuen Abrechnungsdienstleister "2Checkout" auch diese Möglichkeit entfernt. Beim heutigen Kauf der Verlängerung kamen insgesamt drei Mails (1. Bestätigung des Kaufs / 2. Bestätigung der Zahlung / 3. Produkt-/Abonnementinformationen). In keiner dieser Mails ist eine Möglichkeit beschrieben oder verlinkt, die Kündigung des Abos auszuführen. Dieses Geschäftsgebaren hat nichts mehr mit dem bisher üblichen vertrauensvollen Verhältnis und den angenehmen Kontakt bei Fragen zu tun! Kundenbindung wird nicht durch Abos sondern durch gute Produkte (welche Emsisoft nach wie vor fertigt) und vernünftigen Support erreicht. Also: Wie kann ich nun mit einfachen Mitteln das aufgezwungene Abo umgehend kündigen??? - Danke für kurzfristige Antwort und hoffentlich baldige Änderung des Lizenzsystems - Back to the roots!

    It means that the tests done by AV-C and AV-T have a clear image of how they think AV software should work. The problem arises when your product doesn't fit the mould. Then you get penalized for not doing what everyone else does, even though what everyone else does may not be in the best interest of the user, to begin with. Best example: Snooping around in your encrypted connections, which literally every AV vendor screwed up at least once in the past and probably will continue to happen, exposing users to potentially greater risks than most malware does. For starters, the test sets aren't nearly as representative anymore. When we participated in AV-T and AV-C both tested with less than 200 samples a month on average. 200 samples out of literally tens of millions. The exact selection isn't clear and not representative of what users deal with either. None of them tests with PUPs for example, even though a simple look at any tech support community will tell you, that it is probably by far the biggest problem users are dealing with. So no, neither of those test scores represents real-life performance and it becomes blatantly obvious when you go to places like Bleeping Computer, GeeksToGo, Trojaner Board, Malekal, and all those other communities where people infected by malware show up for help and look at what products these victims used at the time they became infected. Then you will notice that a lot of these products with perfect scores don't look nearly as perfect in real-life conditions. The reason for this discrepancy is quite simple: Most AV vendors will specifically optimise their products for these tests. The most severe cases are where vendors end up outright cheating and detecting the test environments which then results in a change of behaviour of the product (think Dieselgate, but with anti-virus). But there are many ways you can game these tests. For example: you can try to figure out the threat intel feeds the companies use, then just buy those same threat intel feeds so you have all samples in advance you can track their licenses and supply different signatures to them or use your cloud to treat those test systems differently some particularly shady organisations literally also sell you their sample and malicious URL feed, so you can just outright buy the samples and URLs your product will get tested on later What you end up with as a result is a product that is optimised really really well for the exact scenario they are being tested under using the exact type of URLs and samples these testers use, but that is utterly useless when it comes to anything else. We just really don't want to create this type of product. So when we were asked whether we wanted to continue to participate this year, we discussed the matter internally, looked at what we get out of these tests (meaning: whether these tests have a discernable impact on our revenue) and decided that they are simply not worth it and that the tens of thousands of Euros we spent on them every year would be better spent on extending our team and building new ways of keeping our customers safe.

    Hallo Thomas Vielen Dank für Deine Hilfe via PN. Immerhin gibt es diesen "Umweg" um vor Querelen geschützt zu sein. Andere Nutzer sind da wahrscheinlich versierter um das mit Cleverbridge klarzukriegen. Ich bin ganz froh, daß Du mir helfen kannst und willst. Danke dafür .

    Ja, Icewolf, wie Du hatte auch ich gedacht, daß Emsi sich unserer Kritik annimmt und da nachbessert. Für mich erstaunlich wegen der bisher so besonders kundenfreundlichen Praxis (keine Daten verhökern, keine Toolbars etc. mitinstallieren...), daß man unsere Beschwerden offenbar stumpf ignoriert. Bei allem Pipifax,wie "nicht übersetzt, fehlt was am Rand, Farbe nicht gut, Anpassung an Monitor unzulänglich etc.)" wurde irgendwann - meist schnell - reagiert und nachgebessert. Jetzt kommt man mal mit einer wirklich schwerwiegenden Kritik - und nix passiert. Naja, Win10 bringt ja den inzwischen reiferen Defender mit, und da "der Geiz geil ist" werden die meisten Kunden keine zusätzliche AV Software installieren. Da scheint die Firmenleitung ihre Felle schwimmen zu sehen... Anders kann ich mir einen so schwerwiegenden Fauxpas nicht erklären bei der bisherigen Philosophie des Herrn Mairoll. Schade
