AntiVir detects all viruses in the Virus Bulletin Test

Tettnang, 15 June 2005 – H+BEDV Datentechnik is awarded with the Virus Bulletin 100% award once more. AntiVir obtains the sought-after title in a large comparison test performed for Windows XP Professional operating system. The virus protection program has detected all viruses in all tested categories and herewith constitutes one of the few programs that provides such a comprehensive protection.


It is necessary to detect all “In the Wild” viruses, in order to get an award. AntiVir has obtained this award for the sixth time without interruptions. We are talking about the currently active harmful programs. Furthermore, the categories macro, polymorph and standard viruses were also tested. AntiVir managed to detect ”on access” as well as ”on demand” in all categories 100% of viruses. In addition, there were no false positives, i.e. files that are wrongly declared as malicious were not declared as infected.

The "Virus Bulletin" is the most renowned magazine for virus protection and security worldwide. The performance tests for security software as well as the criteria for the award of the sought-after Virus Bulletin 100% logo constitute the most demanding in its line. The repeated award entitles H+BEDV to have the Virus Bulletin 100% logo on its product packings as a seal of quality.
