Re: The Russians ate my homework

Yes R6, the famous room with 43 pc's running all versions of all available AV, tweak your code till it passes then Whooooosh . . . quickly deploy that cryptolocker apparently from criminalz.

But if any particular vendor-Z is now vendor-non-grata in country X (because vendor-Z's cloud-based Structured Threat Information expressions can potentially catch Malware Y)

this implies a few further things,

a) those paranoid should orthogonally run both CIA & KGB based threat detection (as was always suggested) &

b) if country X is banning vendor-Z AV from being widely deployed in country X, then just who is country X aiming their malware at? who is their target! Eh?
