Latest VB100 announced

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Jun 20, 2007

Products for 64-bit Windows Vista to be tested.

VB has issued a call for submissions for the latest VB100 comparative review, with products for the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows Vista to be tried out under VB's strict testing protocols.

The deadline set for submissions is July 3rd, with testsets and test platforms frozen on June 29th - the latest WildList available from the WildList Organisation on this date will be used for the test. Those products which prove capable of detecting the full contents of the WildList, both on access and on demand, without raising any false positives on a set of known-clean files, will be awarded VB100 certification.

An overview of the VB100 testing process can be found here, with more in-depth details of the testing procedures, including recently tightened rules regarding false positives, here. Submission is entirely free of charge, and any software vendors interested in submitting a product for the test should contact John Hawes for further information.

The results of the test will appear in the August issue of VB, available (from 1 August) to subscribers only - see here for details of how to subscribe.
