As it happens there are a few AV vendors who are less than impressed with "independent AV Tests". The lists that are published influence buying decisions, but quite a few vendors believe they don't reflect product capability.

Well, leave it upto the companies to make their own products look better LOL

Agreed, there should be standards, and seeing as computer security is a growing business, i wouldn't be surprised if there was an internet security commission soon
