    Artemis - seems to have had false positives reduced

      I'm well known here for being an Artemis detractor at times. Quite simply, I loved the technology and what it promised. In reality, I was very disappointed by the number of false positives I was experiencing when using it.

       

      However, my recent perception is that the Artemis database has been cleansed of many of the bad signatures (especially the heuristic ones). Detection rates (of malware) seems to be the same, but the false positives seem to be missing.


      Perhaps it's the concerted effort by McAfee to whitelist known good files, perhaps it's something else ... but I definately notice it.

       

      When I roll out 8.7i to Win 7, I will have it enabled (at low). I never had the confidence to roll it out to my 8.5i clients.
