    Troubles in Russia? *Gasps*

    Yandex has raised legitimate points. It is not at all clearcut how to look at a page and determine if it has malware. The best antivirus software only detects 30-40% of malware. What these statistics show is that Google’s detection methods and the study’s detection methods are similar. They both find (and potentially miss) the same things. There is no way to conclude that Google is better than Yandex. A better methodolody would be better to look at the number of pages each search engine crawls and the amount of pages they mark as malware, to see who is finding more malware.

    I agree. AV-Test has not given clear points on how they determine what is a malicious result and what isn’t.

    Yandex is a malware itself!
    Good, I found an extension (“BlockSite”) and a program (SUPERAntiSpyware ) to avoid having it as a homepage and having its toolbar on the browser. It became popular as not everyone can avoid it. Hate coercion…
