Qihoo 360 Technology Caught Cheating In Antivirus Lab Tests

Chinese Internet security provider Qihoo had to withdraw from antivirus evaluation tests conducted by three of the world’s most prominent testing labs. Researchers at Virus Bulletin, AV-Comparatives and AV-Test Institute found that Qihoo cheated by submitting one version of its products for testing, while supplying another version to customers.

The three prominent institutions have revoked all rankings and certifications awarded to Qihoo’s products this year. The security testing bodies said that the version made available to consumers offered “considerably lower level of protection and a higher likelihood of false positives,” compared to the one submitted for testing.
