Microsoft Security Essentials Flunks AV-TEST, Loses Certification

Maximum PC: "Microsoft Security Essentials has done it again. For the second time since its inception, the free antivirus software from Microsoft finds itself without German security and antivirus research outfit AV-TEST’s seal of approval, having failed in the latest of the firm’s bimonthly certification tests." (Microsoft, Microsoft Security Essentials, Software)

It's a free product, so I doubt they really care.
