Aside of the quality of the article, the title of the article is a misnomer.
The "malware industry" would represent authors of malware, something that
the named organizations are not part of:
"players like McAfee, Symantec, and dozens of other firms fight for a
share of a market worth tens-of-billions of dollars a year. I would like to
think that this industry displays the same high degree of ethical standards
and integrity shown by other first-responders..."
A proper (yet still silly) title could then be
"Can the antimalware industry be trusted?"
After reading the article, trust really wasn't at issue as much as the
author has a beef with certain organizations over the announcement of
alleged inflated statistics and also allegations of fear mongering.
