Russian antivirus firm faked malware to harm rivals


Recommended Posts

The article is almost "TLDR".


But both the title and the content are notable for one particular item: "Two ex-employees".

We all know about the implications thereof.


So, along with the peculiar timing of this revelation, I think it's quite reasonable to take everything in the claim with a large helping of sodium chloride.


Having said that, who better to "spy" than the Russians, if not the Chinese? :lol: 


Sincerely, a loyal KL user for many years, :D

We conducted the experiment to draw the security community’s attention to the problem of insufficiency of multi-scanner based detection when files are blocked only because other vendors detected them as being malicious, without actual examination of the file activity (behavior). https://securelist.com/blog/opinions/30611/on-the-way-to-better-testing/.


Yes.  This is a known problem in the Industry.  Product X flags a binary.  Product Y gets samples and sees Product X's detection and mimics the detection without actually analyzing the sample.
