Rootkit detection test success running on MS platforms

BitDefender UK : 27 May, 2008  (New Product)
BitDefender scores highly in detection tests run against the latest rootkits for both Windows XP and Vista
BitDefender Internet Security Suite 2008, running on Microsoft Windows XP, has received top rootkit detection results in a test conducted by AV-Test.org during April. On Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, BitDefender was also one of the top three products.

The tests, running on Microsoft XP Home Edition and Microsoft Vista Ultimate Edition, pitted 60 active malware samples (both Rootkits and malware hidden using rootkits) against a selection of antivirus software packages.

While the results of the test showed that detection and removal of running Rootkits is a problem for most major antivirus companies, BitDefender Internet Security 2008 managed to remove 23 Rootkits and 27 hidden malware programs, a success which BitDefender CTO Bogdan Dumitru partly attributed to the B-HAVE pro-active detection technology developed by BitDefender

"The results of tests conducted by independent organizations like AV-Test.org, reinforces BitDefender's success as we strive to improve our pro-active detection technologies," said Bogdan Dumitru, BitDefender's CTO.
