Windows Defender is Better Than Nothing

Security firm Bitdefender recently conducted a study with Windows 8 and its built-in Windows Defender sotfware and discovered that they're able to defeat 85-percent of the 100 malware families used by most hackers in 2012. That's better than Windows 7's out-of-the-box security which reportedly only blocks 32-percent of the malware.

Bitdefender came to this conclusion after setting up a Windows 8 machine, with Windows Defender running, in a controlled test environment. The company infected the machine with "61 malware threats of 385 of the most popular malware samples."

"As a means of protecting a computer from viruses, data theft and other type of malware, Windows Defender is better than nothing," said Bitdefender Chief Security Strategist Catalin Cosoi. "But it’s not a whole lot better. Most of the popular antivirus [solutions] can do better. The conclusion is clear: using your PC without a security solution is extremely risky."
