I have Avast Antivirus free edition, version 5.0.677 in my lab for drive-by test. Preparation for the drive-by test and setup configuration is described here (part 1) and here (part 2). I love Avast, because it is fast and not intrusive at all. It has been performing very well since version 4, and now it simply shines. That is why I was very pleased to see that it passed all my tests with malicious web-sites!
Look at the results:
Eleonore exploits pack – Passed
Phoenix exploit kit – Passed
NeoSploit – Passed
YES Exploit kit – Passed
Siberia Exploits kit – Passed
Seo Sploit pack – Passed
Crimepack exploit system – Passed
Unknown new sploit – Passed
Very good for a free antivirus program!
