MORRO : THE MICROSOFT SIDE OF ANTIVIRUS

1. Impregnable news is coming in that Microsoft is ready to launch its free anti-virus software called Morro for personal computers. This is a huge competition in making for security software leaders like Symantec Norton Antivirus and McAfee Anitvirus software.To address the growing need for a PC security solution tailored to the demands of emerging markets, smaller PC form factors and rapid increases in the incidence of malware, Microsoft Corp. plans to offer this to the new consumer security offering focused on core anti-malware protection.

2. Code-named “Morro,” this streamlined solution will be available in the last quarter of 2009 and is likely to allow comprehensive security from malware including viruses, spyware, rootkits and trojans. 

3. The surprising news is that Microsoft isn't bundling Morro with Windows.Currently in beta testing, it was available for download to the first 75,000 people in the United States, Israel, People's Republic of China and Brazil.

4. Morro” will take advantage of the same core anti-malware technology that fuels the company’s current line of security products, which have received the VB100 award from Virus Bulletin, Checkmark Certification from West Coast Labs and certification from the International Computer Security Association Labs. 

5. “Morro” will be available as a stand-alone download and offer malware protection for the Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. When used in conjunction with the ongoing security and privacy enhancements of Windows and Internet Explorer, this new solution will offer consumers a robust, no-cost security solution to help protect against the majority of online threats.

6. Microsoft in an open source mooood!!!!!!!!!!
