Re: MSE fails AV-Test, loses certification

[...]Another security software testing organisation, Virus Bulletin, says Security Essentials’ performance is sufficient to justify its VB100 rating, which can only be attained by software that “prove[s] it can detect 100% of malware samples listed as 'In the Wild' by the WildList Organization” without generating any false positives.
Article fwiw

If MSE fails this detection tests...then that leaves me wondering how well does the built-in Windows 7 firewall performs....

Thats why i dont trust any FREE security software for this matter...If you want real security software, go for the payed ones if you really want to protect your data.

But no security software is perfect. Remember, there are also insider threats, social engineering and etc....One can trick a person on to clicking on attachments and links in emails and so forth even if they spend 1000s of $$$ on security devices and software.
