Security Vendors Team Up on Malware

Five security vendors said Monday they were joining forces to improve spyware detection software, as well as standardizing methods to create a single benchmark from which consumers and enterprise customers could judge the effectiveness of various software programs.

These standards would be the first collaboration between McAfee, Symantec, Trend Micro, ICSA Labs, and Thompson Cyber Security Labs. Eventual plans call for cooperation in antivirus research, sharing of best practices, and working on guidelines for the dissemination of antivirus information.
