The application of anti-virus software (AV software) in companies is of increasing importance, caused by the enormous damages of different kinds of malware (malicious software). Features of different AV software systems vary in particular through the fast sequence of releases offered by different vendors. The reason for this release bombing is the still unbounded creativity of malware programmers. Therefore, it can only be analyzed through extensive and systematic tests, which software fits the current requirements regarding detection and disinfection of malware. In this paper first the potentials of damages caused by different kinds of malware will be described, followed by a presentation of a systematic test method for AV software.
