AV? That stands for audiovisual
. Anti-virus? Nonexistent save for virii that have already been identified
. Some of the removal systems seem adequate - MalwarBytes comes to mind - but I've yet to find any
anti-virus system that could be trusted. I'll set up a firewall, but it is only as effective as my imagination. To my mind, anti-virus software is totally useless - it's a safety blanket that doesn't work, that gives a false sense of security.
I read raymond.cc's review. It was comprehensive. I appreciate the amount of effort he put forth to create it. But, in the long run, it's basically useless. You never know how adequate your security system is until it fails and you know that it failed
This is common throughout history. Examples? Hadrian's Wall, the Great Wall of China, the French Maginot Line, all were circumvented at some point. Not defeated, circumvented
. And any anti-virus solution will, in like fashion, be circumvented, not by a head-on attack, but by an end run, a circumvention not anticipated by the protection authors.
It is a given. It's a challenge to some. And they will not let that gauntlet lie on the forest floor.
