The polymorphic malicious software (known also as polymorphic file-infectors or polymorphic viruses) is the variant of traditional file-infectors unlike to other file-infectors, the polymorphic viruses use different code-techniques to generate new mutations and make their detection hard for anti-viruses. The practice shows, that not only the ability to cure is important, but the correct detection too. Our test will give the answer how modern anti-virus solutions are able to protect user in case of polymorphic virus infections.
Comparative testing of 21 popular firewalls to check the quality of protection from attacks, coming from inside the system. In the test we checked the protection on 64 specially developed utilities, checking the protection of processes from quitting, protection from standard outbound attacks, protection from non-standard leaks and protection from non-standard techniques of penetration inside the kernel-mode.
