How Good Is Your AntiVirus Against Hacking Team Code?

The company Hacking Team internally tested its code against a wide range of antivirus engines and Internet security apps. Testing was done using Windows 7, 64bit. In this color coded scheme, red means the code was not only detected but issued an alert whereas black just blocked with no notification. Click on the image for the full list.

  • Green – Antivirus does not react to the launch of the agent.
  • Yellow – Agent connects to the server, but can sometimes issues a warning. The antivirus has a non-standard configuration (ie the firewall turned off).
  • Black – the agent can not connect to the server, but there is no anti-virus warnings, or agent is in the antivirus black list.
  • Red – the agent can not connect to the server, an antivirus warning appears (agent is detected as malicious).

    Can you please email me and tell me which is the safest most effective and protective internet security suites and anti-virus programs for computers. I thought that BitDefender is, but judging from the article you have, it looks like that is not the case.

    Thank you.
