Security vulnerabilities in popular antivirus software!

 Cybersecurity researchers have revealed that popular antivirus software has security vulnerabilities.

According to a report released by CyberArc Lab, such vulnerabilities have been used by cyber-attackers to increase their presence in computer systems and to infiltrate compromised systems with malware.

According to the report, such vulnerabilities in antivirus products have made the system more vulnerable to file manipulation attacks. This allows the malware to easily penetrate the compromised system.

This type of bug has affected many antivirus solutions. Among them are Kaspersky, McAfee, Symantec, Fortinet, Checkpoint, Trend Micro, Avira, and Microsoft Defender.

Currently, all of these software bugs have been addressed by their respective manufacturers, but users are beginning to mistrust the security method.

This type of bug allows the attacker to delete files from anywhere in the system. It also allows bad characters to delete any file inside the system, which is called file corruption vulnerability.

According to CyberArch, the bug was caused by the default DACL (Discretionary Access Control List) of Windows's "C: \ ProgramData" folder.
