Computerworld Gives Five Reasons Why You Need a New Approach to Antivirus Security

Bert Latamore at Computerworld has posted a new article discussing a new approach for antivirus security. He draws on table the following five reasons to explain his vision:
  1. Malware attacks are much more focused now;
  2. Malware changes its code constantly;
  3. It's all about the money, its a criminal business now;
  4. Some antispyware is actually malware;
  5. Standard antivirus programs are often ineffective.

In fact I would argue with the last statement since some antivirus software are highly effective when it comes to detect and remove spyware. But generally I agree with the author's conclusions that users should now rely on proactive security software like ProcessGuard, Prevx, TruePrevent, Safe-n-Sec etc.
