    Hi

    I think so.
    I found the site's US english counterpart and got this:



    in comparision to your previous image:



    Comparing your failed in the test and what it says in english, it goes as this:

    1). Add a "run at windows startup" entry in the windows registry.

    This should be covered by the ZA's OSFirewall options for creating new start programs. This should be enabled to either Ask or Deny.
    The ZA does watch and protect the various Startup and Run registry keys of the Windows registry.

    2). Simulation of a file infected with unknown virus.

    Seems to be a basic malware code injection into a known safe file.
    This should be covered by any antivirus scanner usual protection.
    It does not specify which type of file or the file extension involved in this test. An .exe or a .dll or .cab or .zip or .tar or a .wav etc?
    Not too sure about the exact specification in antivirus in your ZA about the file extension that are set by the user or the default settings or a customized setting for the file extensions.
    Then again the test does not state if the file is a known window's file or a completely new file introduced by the test to be tested on by the injection process.
    Or what kind of injection is actually used for this test.

    I do not use the ZA's antivirus and instead use another antivirus.
    But the antivirus and the antivirus definitions used in the ZA is directly from Kaspersky Labs and it is highly regarded in many circles.
    It is an effective antivirus and well respected.


    3). Simulation of a virus running in the memory.

    Again the antivirus should have seen this. Every modern antivirus can see a virus in the memory. I do not understand why this is a fail and not a pass.
    Furthermore, if an application or a virus/malware attempts outgoing connections to the internet, the ZA's firewall will see this and ask or deny the connection attempts.

    To stop unwanted programs in the ZA, the Program slider should be set to the High settings and not the Auto or Medium settings.

    The ZA alerts once given about the virus/malware activities should be stopped and not allowed. If the alerts are allowed, then the security will fail. It is only when the alerts are denied will the tests fail.

    4). Simulation of spyare running in memory.

    The same as the suggestion/comments for 3).

    It depends on how the tests were responded to by the ZA alerts. If the alerts were allowed or denied.

    As for the spyware and malware tests running in the memory, it is hard to determine how this is exactly done.
    Did the test actually run or did the test just check the DEP of the windows and see the operating system is the XP (not the Vista) which has no random memory allocation?
    Is it testing windows (along with how it is setup and arranged) and the security or just the security?
