Why online armor fail in the test in Windows 8 and succeed in Windows XP


Recommended Posts

Thank you for the link. I find it interesting that Emsisoft Anti-Malware notified me it was a trojan when I downloaded it (Trojan.Win32.SpyShelter.AMN (A)), so I will take a look and see if I can find out why.

yes EAM has detected  (Trojan.Win32.SpyShelter.AMN (A)) 

but it's not a trojan .the detect name must be (riskware)

Windows 8 introduced a few additional changes to the way Patch Guard works. As a result it is no longer possible to prevent screen, key, and clipboard grabbing the same way it was previously possible. We are already working on it but we don't have an ETA for an update yet.

 

That being said, actual malware performing key, screen, or clipboard logging will still be detected and blocked for other reasons as it will exhibit a lot more and different behaviors. For example installing autoruns, accessing the internet, installing itself in the system etc.. So beside leak tests who are purely artificial and therefore harmless the actual real life threat for one's computer is negligible and almost purely theoretical.
