i was just reading this article at :
i am pointing to its specific content :
Test 6: Detection
- Bifrost trojan being crypted with Incognito to avoid detection. Theoretically it should bypass all antivirus scan time because each stub is nearly 100% unique, thanks to the polymorphic generator. This test will show how good is the runtime scan of an antivirus (heuristic).
NOTE that MCAFEE failed in the test which was dissapointing ( as i accepted my favorite av to secure good)..
though i am not considering other factors since its 2009 ver and 2010 ver vud be better than this.
as some people reported why their AV could not clear , so i am doing same to spread awareness to MCAfee team and want to know what could be possible reason for that miss ??
Thanks for your post. I can't see from the article whether or not the test included our Artemis technology, which may have made a difference to the results, but without further information about the file it hard to say for definite.
what do u mean by "whether or not the test included our Artemis technology"
shouldnt it be working by default for handling unknown threats ...
so how do i know whether my mcafee total has Artemis tech running ??
Artemis will only be working if the machine can perform queries to our servers over the internet. For our consumer products Artemis is on, but if your machine can't talk to us then the look ups don't happen.
Hope this clarifies.
