One thing of concern to the creators/distributors of malware is whether the virus is able to detect their binary and thus ruin their economic plans.

One possible way to test the detection capability of these binary antivirus is up to sites like VirusTotal, which to date, using 41 different antivirus engines.The big problem is that these sites often work in collaboration with antivirus companies, providing feedback on the samples. Therefore, although at the time of analysis it's possible that only a few of the antivirus (or none at worst) are able to identify the evil qualities of the binary in question, most likely the detection rate will increase to full speed in a short space of time.
