It's just as bad with anti-virus. People have it drilled into their heads by
a clueless media, other clueless people, clueless sysadmins that anti-virus
must fail sometimes. In fact people buy AV tools with failure _in mind._
I face this daily when I try to recommend Messagelabs' or Avecho's services -
how can you beat a 100% virus detection guarantee?
So you've solved the Turing Halting Problem? ;)
(Fred Cohen showed that virus detection is isomorphic to that, back in
his PhD thesis, if I remember correctly)...
