Problems with anti-virus whitelisting

In this week's edition of Risky Business, our weekly security podcast, Patrick Gray files from Kaspersky's partner conference in St Petersburg and learns about issues with whitelists.

In this week's edition of Risky Business, Patrick Gray tells how he got a chance to talk to a stack of AV guys about problems with whitelisting technology. It's showing a lot of promise, but you still can't throw out the blacklists just yet. The future of anti-malware is looking bloody complicated.

Kaspersky anti-virus CEO Eugene Kaspersky and virus analyst Magnus Kalkuhl are on the show to discuss the conundrum.
