it hasn't been that long since both Symantec's Norton AV and McAfee's Viruscan encountered malware that was designed to detect their presence and either cripple or even uninstall them.

From what I have read, those two firms and their software have more respect among the malware creators than most of their rivals, with the possible exceptions of Kaspersky and maybe F-Secure. I don't know whether McAfee and Symantec are still favored by the Fortune 1000, though.

Personally, it always bothers me when it looks so easy to effectively disable an antimalware program, or a firewall, for that matter.
