    SlashDot has this blurb:

    nosig writes "PCMagazine is running a story around the latest AV-TEST response time and proactive detection test for the latest MS05-039 vulnerability related attacks. The test results were announced by the author to the focus-virus discussion list. What's really impresive, besides the huge difference between response times among antivirus companies, is that two products succeeded to proactively detect all 6 attacks without any signature update."

    I expected NOD32 to be one of the two (or I was hoping), but if you click through the link to the PC Mag article, (the link that's labled proactive detection test), you see that it was BitDefender and Fortinet. Panda's TruPrevent also found all 6, so I'm not sure why they didn't list Panda itself as finding them all, since TruPrevent is a part of Titanium Antivirus now.

    I agree - it is important. I hope KAV 6 has better heuristics.

    Well actually when TruPrevent was announced, you could download a 'special' 2004 version _with_ TruPrevent built in to it.
