Details of Microsoft antivirus software leak out
A standalone antivirus product will be built from tools the company inherited through its 2003 acquisitions of GeCad and Pelican Software, according to a report published in CNET News.com's sister publication, ZDNet France, citing the technical head of Microsoft's security project in that country, Nicolas Mirail.
Microsoft representatives in the United States refused to comment on functional elements or a potential production time frame for the antivirus package.
