Microsoft concedes: OneCare antivirus software 'not stellar'

"The recent detection numbers were not stellar," Jimmy Kuo, a member of the Microsoft security research and response team, said in a company blog "We missed capturing a VB100 [Virus Bulletin 100] in the last test because we missed one virus. As a result, we have adopted new methodologies to ... look more closely at families of viruses that have been found to be 'in the wild,' [those] found actively spreading among users."
