McAfee, Trend and Sophos failed to secure Windows Vista SP1

Top tier anti-virus vendors including McAfee, Trend Micro, and Sophos all failed to secure Windows Vista SP1 in recent independent tests.

Virus Bulletin, the independent security certification body, said 17 of 37 anti-virus products tested failed to reach the VB100 certification standard.

Some of the ignored threats – largely polymorphic file infectors – have been in circulation for months. “It is disappointing to see so many products tripping up over threats that are not even new – computer users should be getting a better service from their anti-virus vendors than this,” Virus Bulletin technical consultant John Hawes said.
