Your AV Fails 8 Out of 10 Times
A recent ZDNet article reports that Graham Ingram and AusCERT are reporting that 80% of all malware is undetectable by anti-virus vendors. During a security breakfast Ingram said, "antivirus programs don't work."
Using our malware database we can confirm this fact. What's interesting is that AV programs fail differently. This is more proof that the closed-source, closed analysis methods have been woefully inadequate, albeit extremely profitable.
