    Interesting cat fight has become of this.

    Though I am curious how it can get "less than 10%" when the nature of application reputation itself couldn't allow this? Are they trying to say over 90% of malware somehow was allowed without warning even without reputation? Though, the graph still shows SmartScreen above both Norton AND McAfee if it is to be believed. Needs more elaboration.

    I also like the part where they promote Trend Micro at the end of the blog, "trend Micro 100%, Norton 1.3%, Microsoft 0%, Sophos 0%, McAfee 0%". Riiiiight. This is coming from the company that has been where the past few years?

    Something is fishy about both IE9 results.
