Antivirus Security: Naked During Updates
The security of modern computer systems heavily depends on security tools, especially on anti-virus software solutions. In the anti-malware research community, development of techniques for evading detection by anti-virus software is an active research area. This has led to malware that can bypass or subvert anti-virus software. The common strategies deployed include the use of obfuscated code and staged malware whose first instance is not detected by the anti-virus software. Increasingly, most of the modern malware are staged ones in order for them to be not detected by anti-virus solutions at the early stage of intrusion.
