Huge Test shows the limits of Scanning


A large test shows that the flood of malware is outstripping the capacity of most detection products to keep up...AVTest ran a huge test of backdoors (59,053), bots (70,658) and trojan horses (159,971) for a total of 289,682 malware samples. They ran them through 33 products. We have separate numbers on the bots, backdoors and trojans, but check out the table, below, for the ranked results of overall detection percentage.

How do the numbers look? If you ask me, not good. The Limits of Scanning
