FRISK Software reaches an important milestone in the history and development of F-Prot Antivirus.

12 November 2003

F-Prot Antivirus now detects over 100.000 viruses, worms, trojans and other malicious programs!

FRISK Software has, since its inception in 1993, consistently been at the forefront of the global battle against malicious and destructive computer software. Through our constant dedication and commitment to providing the best possible antivirus protection for our customers we have now managed to raise the number of malicious programs detected by F-Prot Antivirus to over 100.000!

“I remember, many years ago when we first started out, looking at a list of the 100 viruses that existed at the time and wondering whether they would ever reach a thousand!” says Fridrik Skulason founder of FRISK Software.

However, the number of malicious programs in the wild has sky-rocketed in recent years and the last few months have shown that threats against data security have become more dangerous and more advanced than ever before.

The Msblast attack of late summer as well as the Sobig epidemic of last autumn gave a clear indication of the potential destructive force of today´s malicious software attacks. This is why it has become more important than ever to take proper counter measures against these threats and to prepare for the unknown threats of the future. F-Prot Antivirus is without a doubt one of the most respected and effective products on the market that serves this purpose.

Throughout the years FRISK Software’s virus analysts have inspected, analyzed and neutralized every specimen of malicious software they have been able to get their hands on. This work has resulted in one of the biggest malicious software information databases in the world and an antivirus program that is unmatched in the security, reliability and peace of mind that it provides its customers.

“We have always been committed to providing a product of the highest quality and this latest achievement proves that our hard work over the years is paying off” says Fridrik.

While FRISK Software celebrates this important milestone in the history of the development of F-Prot Antivirus we also look forward to a bright future with the further growth and expansion of the F-Prot Antivirus products range.
