Why not participate in the Drive-by Download AVLab testing ?

Why would we want to get tested in an anti-exploit test if we don't offer or advertise anti-exploit features? If they used live real world malware for their tests, we wouldn't have minded. But in general, we don't see a point in participating in tests that use custom-made malware. That's one of the reasons we dropped out of MRG as well. There is enough bad stuff out there already. There is no point in artificially adding to the pile.

Thanks for the reply.

Tests that use simulators or custom malware suggest that protection effectiveness under simulated conditions will translate to identical protection effectiveness under real-world conditions. What is your perspective on this ?

I think it is important to ask because there is enough debate regarding simulators and the nature of the arguments lead to general confusion more than anything else.
