Row breaks out over antivirus response times


A boast by F-Secure that it can counter new infections more quickly than any other antivirus firm has provoked an angry response from rival vendors.

The row was sparked when a senior F-Secure executive told vnunet.com about the firm's ability to beat its competitors "easily".

"Symantec's figure is somewhere around nine hours. McAfee's is around 10 hours. So we are beating them easily, we are beating the big boys hands down," claimed F-Secure's chief research officer Mikko Hyppönen at a recent briefing. Row breaks out over antivirus response times - vnunet.com
