    Not the company sponsored or clearly biased comparisons that I see out there. By independent, I mean that they have no interest at all in who wins or to test only the areas a certain AV will do well in. Totally unbiased tests are rare to find and the AV areana is no exception.

    Am I reading that right, that they used AV versions as of Febuary 2003?

    "VTC test "2004-07" was started in June 2003, with tesbeds frozen as known
    on December 31, 2003 and products submitted in February 2003"

    Alright. You enlightened me. Thanks :)

    I always suspected that Sophos had something to do with VB....but I only thought that maybe Sophos was sponsoring VB.

    Thanks again :)

    But then again every company has to be owned by someone.

    VirusBulletin is 'independent'; I do not see that Sophos gets publicity or results in favour of Sophos in VirusBulletin.
    Everyone has its own opinion .
    Just because they are in the same building and share some infrastructures, it does not mean that they are not independent.

    Now I'm confused - but I'll take IBK's word for it because he's an expert :)
