I’m not saying AV is completely useless, just that users should behave as though it is.
Best statement I’ve seen about AV in years. If you don’t want to be infected with a computer virus, run an AV tool (if on Windows), but act like you aren’t running an AV tool when you use the PC.
- The AV advertisers claim 80-90% protection.
- Security experts believe the truth is closer to 50% blocks.
I know which I believe and it isn’t the advertisers.
Act like your antivirus doesn’t work when browsing the internet. That sums up internet safety.
