    All three of the anti-malware products submitted by Trend Micro for Virus Bulletin's independent tests failed because they produced false positives.

    Trend Micro, one of the 'big four' anti-malware companies, submitted no fewer than three of its anti-virus products, all of which falsely identified a Microsoft development tool as spyware," said a statement from Virus Bulletin.

    Microsoft had received widespread criticism in February 2007 after its OneCare consumer AV product failed to achieve VB100 certification on the 32-bit version of the Vista platform. "This time its enterprise product, Forefront, put in a strong performance and was awarded VB100 status for Vista x64," the Virus Bulletin statement said

    In June three anti-virus makers, Kaspersky, Grisoft/AVG and F-Secure had failed to meet the VB100 standard for virus detection on Windows XP.
