Microsoft Security Essentials Fails AV-Test Certification
Above links describe recent failures by MSE. Is MSE/Defender in Win8 more secure, if so, what makes it more secure ?
My intent is not to engage a debate about MSE vs other AVs, debate different testing methods, or bash Microsoft. But it is concerning about the recent test failures by MSE.
(Malwarebytes recently detected a rouge link on my system which MSE did not detect. MSE did recently block a Trojan but I was not notified at the time, only noticed when reviewing the weekly activities.)
