The Register reports that Virus Bulletin has announced it's latest
results comparing a range of antispam products. McAfee won - and by the
looks of it SpamAssassin and ClamAV came last.
<deep breath> the methodology was flawed of course (oh no, I've become
One of Those...). The chose SuSE10 which came with SA 3.1.8(!!) and
didn't even think it unfair to compare an old product against current
releases of commercial products - but there you go... Poor old ClamAV
was treated similarly: ClamAV is an antivirus product - they actually
tested Sanesecurity's add-on spam rules. I don't know of anyone using
those rules who doesn't use them *in addition* to SA... Really didn't
know much about what they were doing...
