    I see the first post in their forum was March 22, 2006.
    In fact their copywrite is also 2006, not 2005-2006

    I don’t know how others feel, but I personally found the reports on www.malware-test.com very interesting and informative. The tests seem to be documented in such a way that they lend themselves to the various anti-Spyware applications taking corrective action (for those items tested) if they so choose.

    It should be noted that the particular report that HAHAHA documented which reported "Spybot S&D: 0.00%" was not for the removal of spyware but rather for the removal of the following rogue/fake anti-spyware products:
    • AdwarePatrol
    • AlertSpy
    • SpyDeface
    • SpyNoMore
    • SpywareThis
    • Spyware
    • Vanisher
    • SpywareHospital
    • SpySniper
    • SpyLax - Adware_DashPcCleaner - PassThisOn
    • SpySpotter - Freeloader_SpySpotter
    • SpyFerret
    • SpyDestroy
    • SpyContra
    • AdwarePro
    • AdwarePunisher - Adware Punisher
    • AdwareNuker
    • AdWhere
    • KillSpy
    • MalWhere
    • ScanSpyware
    • SafeAndClean
    • SpyPry
    • SpywareKilla - Scam.SpywareKilla
    • Spyinator

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.

    Note that fourth round focuses on rogue/fake antispyware softwares.
    Of the 20 or so rogue/fake antispyware tested, Spybot has several in Beta, a couple in PUPs and a couple are actually Adware. Others aren't targeted by Spybot S&D at all, so obviously the results would be low.

    The 'HERE' in the above is a link to the PDF containing the testing methodology and other testing information. I suggest you read everything they offer before you believe the 'results' of a pointless test.

    The fact that everyone else got low scores should be a warning flag that something is based on fallacy.
