    Default Report: antivirus applications getting weaker over time



    The current state of software, security, and virus protection is a mixed bag. Amidst questions of Vista's security prowess over Windows XP, a new report set to be released by German computer magazine c't next month says the accuracy of antivirus software is waning. Particularly when it comes to detecting new, unfamiliar attacks, the 17 software packages tested dropped in average effectiveness by nearly 50 percent in 2007.

    To All:

    This linked report contradicts another report that was listed here:

    The other report stated that antivirus utilities were getting so good that antispyware utilities were no longer needed.

    You be the judge.
