Sunbelt VIPRE AV Detection Test

Today I ran a detection test with Sunbelts VIPRE at default settings on a sample size of 6,300 files. Every file was an active infection so there was a 0% chance of any false positives. The collection was from 2008.

With default settings out of 6,345 files, VIPRE detected 3385 samples, leaving behind 2,960 infections. Total detection rate so far is 46.65%.

Im currently looking for a larger sample size as this small of a sample size isnt representative of the overall malware base for Windows based PC's. Any files that are not detected or removed will be sent to Sunbelt for the improvement of their database and detection rate.
