Antivirus applications should protect your PC or smartphone from viruses and hackers. However, it has recently been revealed that there is have been completed 28 popular antivirus applications that have been found vulnerable to general security weaknesses. Using this application can put your device and data in danger. This is what you should know and why you should worry if you use one.
Your favorite antivirus applications like Kaspersky, Microsoft, McAfee, to name a few, share one similar error. This flaw originates from the same source code which can be exploited by hackers.
RACK911 Labs was the first to discover vulnerability and has since published their findings to inform people, and encourage companies to overcome these deficiencies.
RACK911 Labs has created a unique way to use intersection directories for Windows and symlinks for macOS and Linux to turn almost any antivirus software into a self-destruct tool that can make your operating system compromised or worse, unusable.
Almost all antivirus software works the same way. When unknown files are saved to the hard drive, the antivirus performs “real-time scanning” instantly or within minutes.
If an unknown file is specified as a threat, the file will automatically be quarantined to a safe location while waiting for further instructions by the user, or can be deleted entirely.
Antivirus software is run under special circumstances. This means that it operates at the highest level of authority in the operating system, and this is where vulnerability lies.
File operations are almost always carried out at the highest level, which opens the door to various racial vulnerabilities and conditions.
Most antivirus software fails to record the small time span between the initial scan that detects malicious files, and the cleanup that follows.
If someone with malicious intent gains access to your computer, he will race conditions through the intersection of directories from Windows or symlinks for Linux and macOS, which make use of privileged file operations to disable antivirus software or stop an incorrect operating system. work.
Exploitation is easy to do. Malware creators will have no problem using this exploit if they want to harm your PC and files. The hardest part is finding out when to intersect a directory or symlink because time is everything.
A list of affected antivirus software that has vulnerabilities can be seen here at the very bottom of the page.

More than 50 new deaths due to COVID-19 were reported in Los Angeles County on Friday, and with 43% of the county’s deaths occurring in skilled nursing homes, new restrictions were imposed on all long-term care facilities to ban visitors and prohibit joint activities. in.
Another 52 deaths from coronavirus were reported on Friday by Barbara Ferrer, director of the district’s Department of Public Health, although that number included one death reported Thursday afternoon by the city of Pasadena, which has its own health agency.
Long Beach, which also has its own health agency, announced two additional deaths, bringing the total to 29 cities.
The new deaths bring the total area to 850. Ferrer said one death previously reported in the county turned out to be a resident of another jurisdiction.
Ferrer notes that 91% of people who have died of disease in the area have an underlying health condition.
Ferrer also reported 1,035 other confirmed COVID-19 cases, bringing the total to 18,517. Pasadena then reported six other cases, while Long Beach added 22 more cases, bringing the total area to 18,545.
A total of 293 institutional arrangements – including nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, shelters, prisons and prisons – have at least one case. These institutions have accounted for a total of 5,339 cases, and 365 deaths, representing 43% of all corona virus deaths in the area. Most of the deaths were residents of skilled care facilities, where testing is being boosted starting Monday to include all residents and staff regardless of whether they show symptoms.
The continuing increase in cases and deaths in nursing homes pushed district health officials Friday to issue revised orders that apply to all “combined health care,” or long-term care, facilities, Ferrer said.
The order prohibits non-essential visitors to the facility, so that only important workers can enter.
“This postpones all joint meals and activities … to ensure that there is sufficient distance between the residents who live there,” Ferrer said. “Staff will be asked to always wear surgical masks and use personal protective equipment if appropriate. And residents also need to wear surgical masks or face masks when they are outside their private rooms.”
He said the increase in tests that would begin Monday was also part of the new health order, but the plan was announced earlier because of the continuing increase in cases and knowledge that people who were unconsciously infected could spread the disease even though they had no symptoms. .
Improved testing of all residents and nursing home workers, regardless of symptoms, is being carried out in conjunction with the city of Los Angeles. Ferrer said facilities with the most severe outbreaks would be given top priority, but all houses would get increased testing.
Nursing homes have been a concern since the outbreak began, given the close limits of patients and staff. This week, members of the California National Guard were deployed to four nursing homes in the county to assist with the operation, mainly due to lack of adequate staff as a result of the spread of the virus.
“We are not asking for the National Guard, but we are asking for help,” Ferrer said. “And the National Guards are great. We did ask the states to help us in staffing. The easiest thing for them to do is mobilize the National Guards and we are very grateful because they did. And they continue to give us support.”
On Friday, more than 108,000 people were tested for the corona virus in the area, with 15% positive, Ferrer said.
Ferrer announced Thursday that an average of 44 people had died of the corona virus during the previous 12 days, making COVID-19 the leading cause of death in the area, which surpassed flu, lung disease and heart disease.
Of the 848 people who died of coronavirus in the county, ethnic data are available for 771 people. Of those, 37% are Latinx, 28% white, 18% Asian, 15% black, 1% native to Hawaii / Pacific Islands and the other 1%.
Included in more than 18,500 cases in the district were 100 homeless people, most of them due to the plague under investigation at the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles. Ferrer said the county was still waiting for some test results from the facility, but officials said earlier this week that at least 56 people had tested positive, and one staff member had died.

That Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said that the two medics were previously diagnosed on January 18 after being taken to the Wuhan Lung Hospital and eventually moved twice. Yi was a cardiologist and had defeated COVID-19 after doctors then linked it to a certain life support machine called ECMO for exactly 39 days.
ECMo is known as a drastic life support procedure that actually replaces the function of the heart and lungs with the process of pumping oxygen into the blood found outside the body. Yi said that he had recovered mostly in a statement he gave to CCTV from his own hospital bed.

Yi, said that he was slowly able to overcome the psychological obstacles that existed slowly after the doctor comforted him and also arranged counseling for him. Currently, he is being treated in another ordinary ward at the Wuhan China-Japan Friendship Hospital.
Dr. Hu Weifeng, a urologist, has actually been bound to bed for 99 days and his overall health is still considered weak, according to Dr. Li Shusheng, who treated Dr. Hu Dr. Li also said that aside from the virus, they were also very worried about Dr. mental health. Hu alone.
According to Dr. Li, Dr. Hu did not stop talking to all the doctors who came to examine him. Hu actually underwent ECMO therapy from 7 February to 22 March and finally regained his ability to speak on 11 April.
He is currently being treated in the intensive care unit at the same hospital as Dr. Yi Li also suspected that the two medics’ skins then darkened because of certain types of drugs they had received since the beginning of treatment.
Dr. Li then added that the side effect of the drug itself is darkening of the skin even though he did not specify what drug or specific drug used to treat it. Li also hopes the skin color of the two medics will eventually return to normal after their liver function improves.
