Virus Bulletin February VB100 Awards - 2012

Virus Bulletin has released their latest VB100 awards results. Only about a dozen companies were in the test. The tests were done on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, hence the smaller number of participants. McAfee, Symantec, and Trend Micro didn’t have products in the text. Products not passing were from Kaspersky (this is an incentive to get you to visit the site to see who passed!). Bravilna to those who received a VB100 award! Hint, three of the vendors begin with an A.

VB100 Test Methodology

The purpose of the VB100 comparative is to provide insight into the relative performance of the solutions taking part in the tests, covering as wide a range of areas as possible within the limitations of time and available resources. More details are available at

UK based Virus Bulletin started in 1989. The organization provides PC users with a regular source of intelligence about computer viruses, their prevention, detection, and removal, and how to recover programs and data following an attack. The Virus Bulletin website is at
