BTW, it failed the recent AV test. Just FYI..

Just did it. Which reminds me that truth has many faces, what is right for one is wrong for other. The link I posted says otherwise(you probably didn't bother reading it). At least according to virus bulletin BD failed because of false positives and not because of missing real viruses. No point to argue, just wondering how reliable these reports are? Are you really shure that virus bulletin is the "almighty" source of information or just blindly trusting it because microsoft said so?
