Security Companies Agree To Testing Standards

IBM, Microsoft, McAfee, Symantec, Trend Micro, and Panda Security are among those in Spain this week hammering out details of the anti-malware group.
Despite their business differences, computer security companies are coming together to standardize testing for anti-malware products and services.

In Bilbao, Spain, on Monday, more than 40 security researchers and anti-malware testers convened to formalize the charter of a new Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization.

Ultimately this is not a technical problem, it is a legal problem. We will have to do a better job of sending these crooks to jail.
