Is Antivirus Ready for Open Source?

The open source software movement has come a long way. A decade ago, nobody but the actual participants in open source projects and other IT enthusiasts gave the movement much chance of succeeding, but today, it's tough to deny the success of open source products. However, when it comes to security tools and antivirus software--the thin blue line separating our computers from certain infection on the Internet--there is less agreement that open source can secure as well as traditionally developed, closed-source products.

  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
Robin Miller recently published a story on Newsforge about "Stan"[1], as an example of a situation that demonstrates proprietary software is a danger to business continuity. I found this story interesting since I think Mr. Miller came close to correctly identifying a core issue, which is that the proprietary software business model as it exists today both facilitates and encourages vendors to act in bad faith. However, it did not need to have been this way, and really comes down to misuse of licensing along with some deliberate abuse and exploitation of existing commercial law.
