Anti-Rootkit Tests

The results and analysis of Anti-Rootkit Tests

This third in a row test evaluates the ability of the most popular antivirus and anti-rootkit products to detect and remove malicious programs ("in-the-wild" samples) that use rootkit technologies and actively circulate over the Internet. The test gives us a good view of how antirootkit software copes with well-known rootkits.

The aim of this test is to evaluate the ability of the most popular antivirus and anti-rootkit products to detect and remove malicious programs (‘in-the-wild’ samples) that use rootkit technologies and actively circulate over the Internet, as well as checking proactive detection capabilities to detect proof-of-concept rootkits hidden on a system.

The purpose of this test is to analyze the ability of the most popular stand-alone anti-rootkit products to detect and remove malicious programs, actively distributed over the Internet (“In The Wild” samples) in their active state, that take advantage of rootkit technology.
