"... security researchers at Matousec.com have devised an attack that
allows malicious code to get around antivirus software. Based on the
company's tests, every Windows security product tested so far is vulnerable.

Reminds me of the Polish Virus!

******** ZAP! ********
You have just received the "Polish Virus"!!! As we don't have any
programming experience, this virus works on the honor system.

Please delete all the files on your hard drive, then manually forward
this virus to everyone on your mailing list. Thanks for your cooperation.

Read the article again. It said:

"just because your antivirus/antispyware software isn't included
doesn't mean it's immune - it could just be that Matousec's
researchers haven't gotten around to testing it yet"

Right. I should have said: "MSE isn't on the list, so I've got a better
chance of having a wonderful computing experience than if I were using
Norton!"

Of course holding a squealing piglet in each hand has a better chance of a
wonderful computing experience...

Thanks for the correction.
