Re: Think layers of security is all that? Think again

When we have "my A/V is better than your A/V" threads this comes up a lot.

"ABC A/V didn't detect XYZ malware and I got infected so it's junk. Reports show that DEF A/V detects 99.99999999% so it's better".

The argument I love is that "DEF A/V detects more zero-days than yours".

Um, zero-day's are by definition unknown and new. A/V programs use heuristics to try and catch zero-day's but that's not foolproof and never will be.
