Oh, so that makes it ok for any application to lower https security then? :disagree:
Fact is we don't really need AV anymore unless we handle old software. How many virus infections have we seen lately? What we see is ransomware and other types of malware.
In other words, what we need is a more thorough approach including sandboxed environments, default outbound block in our firewall, mitigation to make sure no ransomwares can encrypt umpteen thousand files in our computers without being stopped and protect against process hollowing/hooking to make a mention of a few counter measures.
What we don't need is security applications (any other application for that matter) that lowers our security and so the article is valid with no koolaid added.
