Introduction

Continuing looking at the combined results from the different anti-virus scanners, we also wanted to show the daily improvement. Like stated previously our sample sets are not a stable testing environment. These are the live binaries that are collected each day from different sources. So one day can easily be very different from the next.

Charts

These charts are generated once a day from the existing Combined Results charts. Note that the retest time frame is 48-hours following the initial test of each binary. No further retests are currently conducted. All the seen improvement is from updates from each the of the vendors in that time.
