Antivirus tools are a useless box-ticking exercise says Google security chap

is there a security bolt on that hasn't been compromised or shown to have vulns ?

So the OS is insecure and the tools we add on to add security are also insecure.

Governments pay for vulns to not be released as they are equiv to weapons in cyber warfare

products are pushed out the door with security as an after thought, users/consumers don't understand, don't care until they are bleating about losing money or being blackmailed

sounds like I need to change career to something with cybersec in the job title and ride the gravy train to retirement

Richard Hollis "Dance band on the titanic" sums it up nicely, a summary of his points is below
