internal review of antispyware companies

Recommended Posts

my company has done an internal review of accredited antispyware companies.

yes i mean the ones accredited by independant LABS not magazines. and the main feedback we have found is there is a 50% split over why some are better then others.

one half is to do with bad programmers and researchers. look at the bottom of the list of such places like westcoast labs for examples.

the other half is to do with fear. some malware creators have sued the likes of symantec due to the fact that they remove the mal ware. this is to put it simply because the malware is not destructive and not illegally taking money. it is purely advertising and symantec get done through anticompetitve laws.

yes malware is a con but they have good lawyers.

i would love to see SAS do well and get recognised for the good they do. but i just hope they keep there eyes open for possible law suites for being that good,

a added feature i would love to see added to SAS would be a code that finds out who made the malware and then sends a mini-nuke to that programmers house,

any chance of intigratating that SAS?? by the weekend? lol

We won't be doing anything like that....although I understand user's frustration!
