The latest VB100 malware test from Virus Bulletin has proved good news for security vendors, all but two of which passed the latest edition of the noted antivirus test.
The December test focused on products for the 64-bit edition of Windows Vista, and vendors were pitted against 100 malware samples collected from the wild.
Among those that passed the most recent test were market leaders Symantec and McAfee, along with CA, F-Secure, AVG and Sophos. Microsoft's Forefront and OneCare also passed.
The only two suites to fail were Alwil Avast and Norman Virus Control, each of which recorded one false positive. None of the 22 products sampled in the test missed any of the malicious samples.
