Virus Bulletin article, November 2006

An article for Virus Bulletin on the popular conception of the anti-malware industry as a (sometimes) necessary evil. Here’s a bit of a teaser:

…we are mistrusted by our customers, by the media, and especially by other sectors of the security industry. We are, apparently, incompetent, elitist, cabalist, money-grabbing, publicity-greedy, and generally ethically challenged. But we have our bad points, too.

Actually, the discussion was rather more serious than that extract might suggest.

This is another piece for which I don’t have access to the approved PDF at present, so here’s a link to the version on Virus Bulletin’s own website: I’m OK, you’re not OK
