    Guillaume Tena was on trial for exposing some faults in the Viguard antivirus software, thereby disputing their 100% success ratio.
    Here's the link to the article...

    I don't know their product, and I sure don't intend to, I don't know if I like their attitude.

    Good to see the reponse. It's hardly enough, though, most of the allegations may well be valid. Viguards answers seem inadequate, but I'm no expert here.
    I do like the colorfull picture midpage, don't see the usefullness, but it looks good.

    PARIS AND ITS SUBURBS
    Hi,

    Well...there's many polemics (forums, hack magazines) in France since this story started.

    I know the product very well which is a mix beteween AbtrusionProtector and ProcessGuard.
    In this story, the problem is the Guillaume T./Guillermito and Teagam/Viguard demeanour/behaviour.

    I think they both put themselve in the wrong:

    *Guillaume T. has not get a real license (there was no trial version in the past) in order to test Viguard.

    *And his demonstration is not really scientific (he's suspected to have disabled an important feature in Viguard).

    *Teagam has a pretentious marketing (in the past, they claim that Viguard can detect 100% of known und unknown virus);

    *Their behaviour against a man who tried to demonstrate a vulnerability in their product is a little bit scandalous.

    I can much appreciate Vigard, but i really disapprove Teagam's behaviour.
    Finally in this story, Guillaume T. may be not in the wrong, but Teagam too.

    For more informations in english, there's 2 articles in the next link.
    In the more recent (march 9 2005), one of the member of K-Otik (team like Secunia) says that it's the end of the Disclosure in France.

    PS. For the link about Andrea's test from AV.org, i'm agree that Viguard is really easy to terminate ( with APT for instance) but there's not really problems with MSFT Antispyware .

    Best Regards
