I think it's unlikely the vendors will join forces in this way.
So do I mate, that was kinda the point really.
I wouldn't be surprised at all if most of the antivirus developers actually already keep a close eye on each others definition databases
Yep, but cloud databases are very different to a definition data base mate...they are more along the lines of heuristic (behavior based).
I agree Marko, tiz very unlikely to happen. The vendors will keep on fighting their individual little battles instead of joining forces and actually making an impact.
