1 Antivirus Fight Club! August 8th @ LinuxWorld

2 Before we begin… Please submit any viruses for the test at

3 Background - who we are Untangle provides an open source network gateway platform. We are not an antivirus company We are not a testing company

4 Background - why we are doing this 2005: Untangle researches antivirus to add to the network gateway platform after testing we choose clam (open source) and one other vendor 2006: Untangle seeks Testing Labs for certification (stickers!) 2006: Testing Lab refused to test AV product, because use of open source won’t tell us why won’t provide test results won’t provide test set Something fishy is going on here…

5 What is the AV FightClub? A simple test of real-world anti-virus detection by different AV engines What AV FightClub is not: Zero-day test Functionality comparison Not coverage testing Open - for samples & participation & discussion Transparent - simple, verify & run at home Two important things!

6 The Test Small Set of test viruses (eicar) Set of ‘in-the-wild’ viruses Set of user-submitted viruses (minus non-viruses, not ‘in-the-wild’ viruses, and phish) Each vendor is subjected to: Scored by % of viruses identified and performance if applicable All vendors should catch all these viruses

7 The Vendors Engines with linux support (clam, kasperskey, fprot, sophos, globalhauri) Gateway Appliances (sonicwall, fortinet, watchguard) Windows solutions (norton/symance, mcafee) Vendors
