Anti Spyware Vendors Mad About Consumer Reports Test Methods

Consumer Reports, the independent product review and rating publication, was slammed Friday for using what security experts called "mind boggling" and "useless" tests of anti spyware software in its current on the stand issue.

"This is beyond anything I've ever seen," said Alex Eckelberry, chief executive of Sunbelt Software, a Clearwater, Fla. security company. "They ran a test that is not a full test of anti-spyware software capability. Consumer Reports scanned for and removed functionality that isn't even real. When I heard what they did, I went 'huh? They did what?' This is just mind-boggling." Anti-Spyware Vendors Mad About Consumer Reports Test Methods - Internet News by InformationWeek
