AV-Comparatives: Test of 21 antivirus programs - August 2015

In August, the AV-C laboratory on the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 platform tested 21 antivirus programs. Installed applications during the research were able to use the full Internet and own technologies in the cloud. The Real-World survey maps the real environment of the average user who would open and run malicious software using the computer.

403 URLs leading directly to malware samples as well as files from e-mail attachments used in the spammer campaign were used for the test. The test samples used cover a wide range of current infected websites and indicate the possibility of comprehensive anti-virus protection while browsing the web.
