[AT] How Antivirus Can Open You to Attacks That Otherwise Wouldn’t Be Possible - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I feel like this is said to death in just about every thread dealing with AV software, but I don't feel the need to use any. I just use my head when it comes to stuff, like using an adblock and noscript, and not downloading sketchy stuff. Haven't had a virus in years.

I delete anything that goes into my quarantine (assuming it's not something legitimate). Who would win: genius security researcher or my OCD of immediately deleting malware tongue.gif. Obviously there are other potential security holes in AVs, but this one only seems to affect those who don't care.

Edit: Oh I see, it would be restored automatically. Should've read more carefully. Still, that gives you a massive headstart in removing the malware (knowing it exists on your system).
