    I wouldn't put much stock in this test. A quote from the tester:
    I recently acquired a few more possible viruses (I am now up to 758 possible Trojan, backdoor, and virus infected files). All of these test files were acquired from in the wild, mostly through cleaning of infected computers and through catching them in the act. There are no known zoo viruses in these tests. Each and every test file was identified as containing malicious code by at least one of these antivirus programs.

    So in other words a false positive by one of the AV's is going to count against all the other AV products as a miss in this test. That is a great testing methodology.
