NOD32 Antivirus Software Holds Record for Number of “In the Wild” Wins

SAN DIEGO – October 5, 2006 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that ESET NOD32 Antivirus received its fortieth VB 100% award in the October 2006 Virus Bulletin Comparative Review. ESET earned its latest VB 100% score in comparative testing of 27 antivirus products running on Windows 2000 Server, further extending its eight-year track record as the vendor with the most awards. Virus Bulletin awards VB 100% scores to products that detect 100 percent of viruses from the WildList without false positives.

“We’re pleased to be celebrating our fortieth VB 100% win, a milestone that underscores NOD32’s unparalleled history of flawless detection across a range of platforms,” said Miroslav Trnka, Technical Director at ESET. “ESET delivers the most advanced proactive technology for combating malware in a fast and easy-to-use product, and it’s an honor to be distinguished as the leader in Virus Bulletin’s In-the-Wild tests.”

ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 2.5 utilizes ThreatSense® technology, a sophisticated detection system based on advanced heuristics, to proactively identify previously-unknown viruses, Trojans, spyware and phishing attacks in real-time. ThreatSense is built into NOD32’s unified scanning engine to provide comprehensive protection so users do not need to rely on additional point solutions for spyware and adware protection.

VB 100% Overview
The VB 100% award was first introduced in 1998. In order to display the VB 100% logo, an anti-virus product must have demonstrated in tests that:

  • It detects all In the Wild viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning.
  • It generates no false positives when scanning a set of clean files.
  • The product must fulfill these criteria in its default state.
