    Well, my view is that you can´t rely on just one engine, that´s why I will never become a fan of an AV/AT/AS, I mean what good is it if it can´t recognize all malware? Just look at Jotti and VirusTotal how many malware is being missed even by the more popular apps. This is a problem that obvious will never be solved so it´s best to scan all of your files at VirusTotal, practice safe HEX and rely on your HIPS. ;)

    Yeah there's quite a few typos in there actually...however, mostly just typos....the grammar is done quite well.

    It is an interesting article, but has been on the site for at least a year... Some (if not most) of the stuff is not the case anymore.
