In-depth security study at
« on: November 05, 2005, 06:21 PM »
From Fred Langa, a reader informs us of "an in-depth security study regarding anti-trojan products was recently conducted by and the results were rather surprising. The Optix Pro 1.33 trojan was pitted against all major Antitrojan products as of August 2005 and although no single product detected all variants."

Quite well done and interesting reading. In the end Fred makes a simple but sound conclusion: don't rely on any one product or tool to secure your data or computer.

Scary - but at least Microsoft seem to be doing well with their Malicious Software removal tool ...

I note thought the MS AntiSpyware,  AdAware, SbyBot Search & Destroy, PestPatrol, Webroot SpySweeper and CounterSpy all came up with no detections at all ... scary ... I use most of those.

NOD32 doesn't come out too bad though ... which is some consolation ...
