Its not that users get infected DUE to using these programs. I said they get infected while using these programs assuming their safe.that's interesting. maybe I am brainwashed by MT.
do you see reports that users of voodooshield, or AppGuard, or NVT ERP, are getting infected?
What i am trying to say is that some newer malware still gets in and these programs seem powerless to stop it.
But then again you cannot blame these programs for it since some of the ways of getting in are outside the scanning and detection scope of these programs.
Imagine a 2 way firewall that is suppose to protect you against hackers and does a fine job at it. Now the hacker comes into your house and sits directly behind the PC and uploads a malicious program using a USB stick.
Then your PC is hacked and your firewall is eating dust.
So no you are not getting brainwashed, its just that Cyber criminals adopt new techniques to deliver their venom on to your system, since they are very much aware of what programs like Appguard and others can do. Refine, adopt and overcome its a endless race.
