    Very nice. Perhaps MS are trying to squeeze themselves into the the anti-malware market after all.

    What do you mean by squeeze themselves in after all? They've been at it for quite a while. They bought GECAD in 2003, Giant Software in 2004 and Sybari in 2005. Forefront has been around quite a while now and there was OneCare before MSE, so they aren't exactly n00bs in anti-malware.
