Updates vs. Virus Detection
When av-test.org pitted major AV programs against over 1 million malware samples, Norton 2009 detected 98.7% of viruses and 95.4 of adware/spyware, well in the middle of the pack. However, an interesting fact was that Norton was issued a total of 6,202 updates over 4 weeks, while Kaspersky had 692 updates, the second most.
How come Norton recieves more updates...way more, but detection is still middle of the pack?
