Anti-Virus Comparison

I’m a regular listener to TWiT’s Security Now podcast with Steve Gibson. On a recent podcast Steve mentioned AV-Comparatives‘ anti-virus testing.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you also know I’m a fan of Windows Defender.

AV-Comparatives’ September 2018 test (PDF) showed that Windows Defender was in the very top performers.

Steve’s assessment was:

Given that Microsoft is one of the 6 AVs with a perfect score, maybe just using the system built into Windows is sufficient protection.

That’s what I use.
