    Indeed, there was much more difficult test about a year ago, where you had to analyse a security software based on the webpage. But average people would fail even this.

    There are fakes, that look and have the same name like fake MSE, so screen test is lame, where you download it matters or how it will appear, like randomly in the browser.

    I've seen many legitimate programs that look nearly identical to malware. Auslogics Pro is one example.
