    AV comparatives Feb. 2005

    I just may want to rethink my security strategy (but then this is "on demand" - resident may differ): http://www.av-comparatives.org/seite...se_2005_02.php

    It works when I click on it. Here's the front page: http://www.av-comparatives.org/ I thought hotlinking was stealing someone's bandwidth with images/files. How is linking to their site stealing bandwidth? I don't understand why they said that.

    They don't do it because of bandwidth,they just want visitors to see their main page first.

    A bit like when you wanted that redirect recently for your themes pages.

    I have said it before and I will say it again, Eugene Kaspersky is one of the most respected in his field. I just wish the real time scanner was a little less resource intensive.

    ***edit - nope, I cleared cache and I still get the correct page. Perhaps cookie?

    - it appears as far as "on demand" and "zoo viruses" - at a cost of high cpu and/or bloat - says nothing about heuristics and zero day though. I'm not sure how heuristics works though - is it applied even if it's a virus that is databased?

    If you copy that link and paste it into a browser it works fine.

    Speaking on behalf of mr gibson I would like to say that:-
    The internet is becoming a DANGEROUS PLACE with POSSIBLE MALICIOUS SOFTWARE around every corner and behind even INNOCENT looking links. I warned Microsoft about shipping their product with RAW SOCKETS enabled by default and that this could possibly bring down the ENTIRE INTERNET but they never listened to me - we will see who was right, after all it's only 4 YEARS since windows XP hit the shelves. Anyone read my DDOS report?
