Someone needs to get out more and get some world wide diversity...obviously the Browser and its WWW hasn't helped him.
Another disadvantage of antivirus products is, according to Oâ€™Callahan that it uses a lot of resources which slow down the computer.
A load of BS...according to Defender/MSE usage my resources has no problems.
He refers to Googleâ€™s Zero Day project which lists exploitable antivirus products from Kaspersky, Trend Micro and Symantec/Norton.
I think this is already known and nothing new.
AV software is broadly installed and when it breaks your product, you need the cooperation of AV vendors to fix it.â€
Not me I just wipe clean the A/V and go with MSE/Defender and have no problems. So not sure where he is coming from but if your A/V (&(& - I get rid of it for some that works.
He writes, â€œAV [antivirus] products poison the software ecosystem because their invasive and poorly-implemented code makes it difficult for browser vendors and other developers to improve their own security.â€
Actually this is true and most know them Norton, McAfee for start.
He does add that uninstalling antivirus software should only be done on an up-to-date OS.
This is a poorly backward thinking...the A/V should update when fix is found and be update to get the most up to date protection regardless of the Windows Update timeline.
