Hiding in Plain Sight

What better way to perform the protracted and resource hogging task of scanning every file on the computer for something of interest, than to hide in plain sight under the guise of an anti-virus application.

Whether or not Kaspersky were responsible in this case, you can guarantee one such application is doing it somewhere.
