The AV Test Institute, a German IT security and anti-virus research firm, regularly conducts tests on some of the most popular antivirus software products in the market. During its recent test for the months of September and October, it revealed that Microsoft’s very own antivirus software, Microsoft Security Essentials, had failed to pass AV Test’s certification. The interesting part is that the rest of the security products which included AVG, Avast, F-Secure, Bitdefender, and nineteen others, all received certification from the security research firm.
