Windows Defender is the number one target and easy to bypass, due to coming pre-installed with Windows 10.Kernel bugs are rarely used nowadays and get fast fixes. Attacker use easy methods with best profit instead of much work.

I would say ~90% of malware is aware of WD nowadays, developers are more lazy to try and bypass third-party AVs rather than WD.
