VB100 test on Windows Vista SP1 announced

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Feb 19, 2008

Products to be tested on new update to Vista platform.

VB has issued a call for submissions for the latest VB100 comparative review, which will test the performance of products available for the Microsoft Windows Vista Business Edition platform (32-bit). The first service pack for the platform, due for public release next month, will be included in the test to measure products' interaction with the updates to the operating system, as well as measuring detection rates and scanning speeds under VB's strict testing protocols.

The deadline set for product submissions is February 28th, with test sets and test platforms frozen on February 25th - 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 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 schedule for future comparatives is here.

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