VB100 NetWare update

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Nov 1, 2007

Updated results for VB100 NetWare comparative.

VB regrets that some erroneous results were recorded for Symantec AntiVirus 10 in last month's comparative review on Novell NetWare 6.5. The product was stated to have missed five samples from the polymorphic set - however it has since been discovered that, as a result of file-copying errors, several corrupted samples were included in the test set used to test the Symantec product.

After removing the corrupted samples and retesting the product, Symantec AntiVirus 10 was found to detect all files in the set, giving it a faultless 100% detection rating across all test sets.

Virus Bulletin apologises both to readers and to Symantec for this error. Measures will be introduced into the VB100 testing process to ensure test sets are kept intact for all tests in future. No other vendors were affected.
