Maximum protection when anti-stealth and phishing protection disabled


Recommended Posts

How is maximum protection ensured when anti-stealth or phishing protection are disabled?

Rootkits aren't considered malware?  Being sent to a spoof website to enter credit card information isn't a serious threat? 

This is still not fixed.

At the moment this is by design. Anti-Phishing protection doesn't protect against malware but rather from fraud and not everyone wants to have it enabled. In such case, changing the protection status wouldn't be desired. You could say the same about the notifications about missing OS updates which are vital for protection. However, these notifications nag many users and they rather prefer keeping this feature disabled.

You would be surprised that some corporate users even want to keep the protection status green even when real-time protection is temporarily disabled.

This doesn't make sense to me, especially not enabling anti-stealth protection.

However, I do appreciate the reply.

Thank you.
