Latest VB100 announced

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Oct 22, 2008

Products for 64-bit Vista to be put through paces.

VB has announced the latest round of VB100 testing, with products running on the 64-bit version of Microsoft's Windows Vista to be tested in November (for publication in December).

The product deadline has been set as November 5th, a date to remember for other reasons in the UK at least, with test sets and test platforms frozen on October 31st - the latest WildList available from the WildList Organization 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.

A range of other aspects will also be covered in the test, including in-depth measurement of scanning speeds and on-access overheads, as well as detection rates over sets of recent trojans, worms and complex polymorphic viruses. 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 December issue of Virus Bulletin, available (from 1 December) to subscribers only - see here for details of how to subscribe.
