Windows 7: Leaked: Microsoft Security Essentials (codename Morro)

Windows 7 build 7100 x86
 
 

Ed Bott did a story of it on zdnet.
How good is Microsoft's free antivirus software? | Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report | ZDNet.com
apparently its pretty good.
Updates every day, with new definitions on the server 3 times a day.
Based on Forefront, but without the level of management that Forefront gives.
AV-Comparatives scores an Advanced+ (also lowest false positive rate), passed ICSA Labs test, immediately recognises EICAR test virus.
Pretty good record when looking at the competition (beats AVG, Symantec, and McAfee).

(Btw, I just find it funny and ironic and yes I know it does not ACTUALLY reflect upon morro.)

But how good can their security program really be if the program was leaked early? amirite?

Very good depending if it was built/coded correctly. =P Just because its leaked doesn't mean a thing.

Also, I'd imagine there'd be a decent amount of updates daily, they are trying to catch up in the definitions. Right?

That was about Morro. Did you read the article at all?
