  • Patch Lady – Defender not having a good week

    Posted on August 13th, 2020 at 22:19 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So the other day we had folks reporting issues with Defender and Western Digital drivers.

    Today Citrix Broker service was flagged as malicious and well.. a whole bunch of work from home remote workers weren’t working anymore.

    Bottomline the best antivirus is silent and does it’s job.  And when it doesn’t…. it often is very painful.  It’s a tight tap dance around our operating systems to determine what is malicious and what is not. And when the attackers try EXTREMELY hard to LOOK like a normal application doing it’s job.  Bottom line we depend so much on antivirus and curse at them when they don’t work.
