OnlineVirusRepair.com Reports Results of Study Showing Ineffectiveness of Traditional Anti-Virus Software

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2013 According to OnlineVirusRepair.com spokesperson Dan Steiner, a 2012 study conducted by the Israeli Institute of Technology and data security firm Imperva, reveals traditional antivirus protection software is relatively ineffective.


The study indicated the major players in the industry such as McAfee, Symantec, Trend Micro and others were able to catch only 5% of newly created computer viruses and malware. In addition, the study indicated many of these vendors took up to four weeks to update their software to take account for the latest cyber threats.

Steiner, who co-founded OnlineVirusRepair.com exclaimed, “The report was shocking because individuals and organizations spend approximately $7 billion a year on anti-virus software alone. They are clearly not getting a sound return on their investment. In addition to throwing money away on software, there data and machines are at a high risk of becoming infected.” As part of the study, a fake Google Chrome installer was reported to the website VirusTotal.com on February 9, 2012, yet by November 17, 2012 only 23 of the 42 software products tested were able to detect it.

Steiner went on to say, “The study revealed to us why our online virus removal service is becoming so popular. Our technicians are able to remotely remove viruses and malware from people’s computers – typically in a matter of minutes.” About OnlineVirusRepair.com OnlineVirusRepair.com is an American based company specializing in computer cleanups for individual computer users and businesses.
