Is the Malware Test site affiliated with BitDefender?

As a company, we have had great success with Webroot Spy Sweeper.  Our
spyware problems have diminished greatly since switching to Webroot.  I
am really shocked at Webroot's rating of 16.51%.

Should we all switch to BitDefender?

Quoted text here. Click to load it has a history of faulty testing methodology. Products=20
that were top one month are bottom the next month. If you notice the=20
anti-virus companies came up higher on this set as they used all virus=20

I had written a blog about this here: -

When we challenged them on the subject, the told us "we won't provide=20
you samples anymore".
