Känner du dig trygg med ditt virusskydd? Glöm det. Vårt test visar att endast tre av åtta virusskyddsprogram hindrar en enkel trojan från att stjäla dina hemligheter.


Sorry I try to google an English translation.

Do you feel confident with your virus protection? Forget it.
Our tests show that only three of eight antivirus software prevents
a simple trojan from stealing your secrets.

from here

So these three that did catch it can be bad at catching other
Trojans that are better at looking innocent or hiding themselves.

So as users we have to find ways to put pressure on the security firms.

oops sorry. it is in Swedish so I would have to change to
my Swedish brain part. Oh Dear!

I take a look! Them tested these products. Two categories.

The home user.

**** F-secure Internet Security 2011
* Kaspersky PURE
* McAfee Total Protection
* Microsoft Security Essentials
* Panda Global protection 2012
* Sophos Anti-Virus
***** Symantec Norton 360
* Trend Titan Maximum


The professional user at a company.

* F-secure Workstation
***** Kaspersky Workspace Security
* McAfee ePO (med hips)
* MS Forefront Endpoint Protection (Client install)
* Panda Security for Desktops
* Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection
* Symantec SEP
***** TrendMicro Office Scan

Sorry I am too lazy to read more of it. I pointed out using stars
that for home user them had two winners.

**** F-secure Internet Security 2011
***** Symantec Norton 360
and for the Company professional user
***** Kaspersky Workspace Security
***** TrendMicro Office Scan

I fail to read why them recommend four when them
say only three passed the test. Maybe one of the four
where good in other ways?

And one need the payed PDF to read in detail.
