Vendors are claiming that the end of antivirus is upon us. Antivirus scans have proven to be very ineffective but are the traditional way of identifying new viruses, with many of the most popular antivirus programs detecting 50-70% of the viruses and only 2% of viruses are detected by all antivirus scan types. This leaves everyone in a very vulnerable position. Others say it is far too early to write off antivirus software altogether as although antivirus may not be the perfect solution it is all we have to rely on presently, new defences are only at the start up stage of evolution.
