A scary but true fact is that there is no anti malware software that will detect (and/or block) the newest threats and there never will be.

It is like with humans, first there is the disease and only after it is known, doctors (scientists etc) can go look for a (possible) cure.
Only thing we can do is use our brains to reduce the chance to get ill as much as possible.
