Virus Bulletin article, October 2006

One thing that tends to get the anti-malware industry hot under the collar, or at any rate those of us with an interest in sound malware testing. Testing with malware created with the tester. In fact, several things about an ill-conceived anti-AV rant by Alan Paller of SANS supporting a poor Consumer Reports-sponsored test got my goat, so I ranted back for Virus Bulletin. I don’t have a copy of the original article to hand right now, so here’s a link to the version on the Virus Bulletin web site. As usual, the article copyright is held by VB.

David Harley, AV Testing SANS Virus Creation, October 2006.

If I find the PDF version, I’ll probably post that here, too.
