According to the latest comparative testing of anti-virus products by Virus Bulletin, an independent anti-malware and anti-virus testing and review bulletin, two did remarkably better than the others.
Coranti from Japan outflanked others including highly-rated antiviruses such as G-Data, Bitdefender, Kaspersky, and E-set. It did better than the three A’s from Europe too. The three A’s are AVG, Avira, and Avast that we usually wax on about at Ducktoes, being good as well as free for home use. The rest did well on the reactive tests, but less well on the proactive. So we’re adding it to the Ducktoes anti-virus cocktail in our lab to see how it does. You can try it too. There’s a 30 day free trial. I couldn’t find prices on their website. Here is their website, by the way: http://coranti.com.
If you have viruses and would like help please visit Ducktoes, your Calgary anti-virus experts.
Here’s the Virus Bulletin site if you’re interested. It’s worth the subscription if you want to know the latest and greatest about anti-viruses.
Proactive means finding new viruses in the wild before the anti-virus company has developed an antidote based on the virus’s definition. Coranti seems to excel at that.
The other that did well is part of a optimizing and cleaning product, Zeobit. I don’t much about Zeobit but I’m really interested. Here is their website, http://pckeeper.zeobit.com/
If you happen to have a virus called the DNS Changer, you, or at least your computer, has been involved in a huge FBI crime sting operation involving Estonian and Russian cybercriminals. What intrigue and thrills! Here you thought your computer was behaving itself quietly at home when really it was off consorting with dastardly foreign types and now has even involved you with the FBI. Aren’t you excited? Isn’t the adrenalin flowing? In fact, if infected, you are now getting your internet through the FBI.
Do you know where your computer has been?
But not for long. The virus has rerouted your computer’s DNS to go through the Estonian servers, and originally there were 4 million of you rerouted that way. The FBI has now taken over these servers from the Estonians and so you now are getting the Internet courtesy of the FBI. The Estonians have been arrested, by the way, the one Russian remains at large.
Now the FBI is worried that if they turn off the servers, all people whose computers have the virus will lose their internet connection. So they are giving people until July to remove the virus. At that point they will shut down the servers. It is very considerate of the FBI to do this, considering many if not most viruses turn off or prevent people’s internet browsers from working.
Everyone should check to see if they have the DNS Changer virus. Here is a site that tells you how. It has a utility to check your computer for the DNS Changer infection. The site is an FBI security partner.
