So I’ve been using windows defender for a while. No problems. I decided to look up if it was safe enough and there were alot of articles telling to use a free antivirus instead and many reddit comments and quora answers telling to stick with defender.
I am at a dilemma. I’ve been researching this for a few hours and decided kaspersky was the one I was gonna use. But then ive read articles on kaspersky and bitdefender getting hacked. Tf should I do?
If I use defender, since most malware makers need to get past defender as the baseline I shouldn’t use it.
But, many people say it’s good enough and by common sense and ublock origin, I should avoid most of the websites I could get malware from. And many antiviruses are getting hacked, getting vulnerabilities, data breaches, etc.
Here is the stuff I’ve read on articles
Avast and AVG(owned by avast):
2017: CCleaner(Avast owned) https://www.kaspersky.com/resource-center/threats/ccleaner-malware
And of course the jumpshot data collection:
Then again defender could be hacked too.
Sorry for grammatical errors. For now I’m sticking with defender.
