Anti-Spyware: Efficiency of the Means of Defense
by Mykola Krasnostup, Dennis Kudin
It is efficiency of data protection that we made the only criterion in our comparative study. Moreover, we tested how anti-spyware and anti-viruses perform against the most dangerous information-stealing software, i.e. the very kind of programs which cybercriminals use to steal confidential information.
The method we used for the testing is simple enough to apply. Even a user not very experienced in programming can do this testing himself – and the results will be the same.
Having studied the situation at the security software market for years, we came to the conclusion that it is necessary to perform our own testing of anti-spyware and make the results public.
