A web service to verify authenticity of anti-virus software

In recent times several rogue security software (misleading applications) are circulating over the internet that mimics the popular security program for confusing users (Avira has already reported that). These programs usually pose a security threat and financial risks to the users.

As an initiative to stop these fraudulent applications, a website (Common Computing Security Standards Forum, CCSS Forum) has been launched as a voluntary organization by the CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. The forum has already been created a public list of trusted vendors and legitimate programs.

However there are a wide range of software developers still in the provisional list, including Microsoft, Symantec, Trend Micro, McAfee, Kaspersky Lab, Check Point, Panda, Sunbelt Software and Webroot .

This is a good initiative from CCSS Forum to prevent fake software from circulating over the internet. The list will help the public distinguish between useful software and online scams. Users can check the forum before downloading or buying security software. More information and other details…. (Via- IDG)
