LXer: How The Anti-Virus Industry Is Turning A White Hat Black, or (at least) Gray

Published at LXer:

After most anti-virus vendors wasted a year before they could detect any near-current version of Hacker Defender, many dismissed their failure as an anomaly. The Hacker Defender blunder just slipped through the cracks, right? Wrong. Late in December, a hacker unleashed an encrypted Hacker Defender along with the code. As, after three long months, fewer than half the anti-virus engines can detect the beasts, chances are excellent that you are not among the protected. Email Battles tells you who can, who can't... and how the a/v industry helps turn frustrated white hats black or gray. Anything but white.
