Joint Research To Test Fraud Anti-Virus Companies

Three major laboratories engaged in testing of virus scanners have announced a joint investigation into fraud by anti-virus companies to test anti-virus software. This weekend the Austrian test laboratory AV-Comparatives came with the news that it had discovered a product of a yet unnamed anti-virus vendor which was specially adapted for the big test laboratories.

In addition, a second anti-virus company of similar practices is suspected. Adjusting virus scanners to perform better during anti-virus testing is contrary to contract rules. AV-Comparatives shows via Facebook know that with Virus Bulletin and AV-Test, two other large testing laboratories, has consulted and has begun a joint investigation into the fraud. Further details on the two suspect anti-virus companies have not been given yet.
