The end of Antivirus Programs?

Secunia's experiment pitted 12 Antivirus programs against a host of exploits... the result: the best AV only detected 20% of malware (out of 300); the next best only detected 2.33%.

Users and businesses need to take the threat seriously and realise that firewalls and traditional security software, such as that included in Internet Security Suites, isn't sufficient to protect PCs and corporate networks. (Src: Secunia Blog Entry)
