This is really hilarious:

https://www.rack911labs.com/research/exploiting-almost-every-antivirus-software/

By putting a known malware in a folder, and after recognition replacing the folder with a symlink, these antivir deleted any data you wanted them to. Really nice research.

We have been involved in penetration testing for a long time and never imagined our counterparts in the antivirus industry would be so difficult to work with due to constant lack of updates and total disregard in the urgency of patching the security vulnerabilities.

industry

It’s now Spring of 2020 and every antivirus vendor that we have contacted has had at least 6 months to fix the security vulnerabilities, we feel the time is right to bring our research to the public. The exploits outlined in this post are not hard to perform and it’s time antivirus vendors step up their game to protect their customers!

protect their customers

It's almost as if the goal of capitalism isn't to be good but to be rich.

How did no one think of this before? Seems obvious.
