I'm glad that anti-virus firms are noticing the growth of Bots.
Unfortunately, their guestimating ability is still woefully inadequate.

Even frequent updates to anti-virus software won't help.  Many
bots disable automatic updates and block access to the antivirus
sites.  By the time anti-virus software detects somethings wrong,
its already too late.  The solution is to make certain your computer is
not compromised, instead of relying on anti-virus to clean it up later.
