Trend Micro fails anti-malware test

All three of the anti-malware products submitted by Trend Micro for Virus Bulletin's independent tests failed because they produced false positives.

Of the 20 products submitted for testing, six generated false positives when scanning a set of known clean files and failed to meet the requirements for VB100 certification.

"Trend Micro, one of the 'big four' anti-malware companies, submitted no fewer than three of its anti-virus products, all of which falsely identified a Microsoft development tool as spyware," said a statement from Virus Bulletin.

"Other products to generate false positives were Fortinet's FortiClient, Ikarus Utilities, and VirusBuster."
