Why are there so many companies out there that want people to hate them... Apple blackmailing asus (ok, I won't be buying any apple products then, and I was previously considering getting an ipod touch), Hotmail going down last night from the main web interface(I'm considering switching to gmail now), and microsoft repeatedly flagging google stuff as malicious with their security programs... Maybe I'll be switching to avast AV then. /rant

I haven't actually seen this bug in action though, nor the previous one with chrome.

Simple Fix...

Just block ALL Microsoft Malware and Spyware from your networks

Security Essentials is Both Malware AND Spyware!

It opens a back door into your Operating System that cannot be closed with any software firewall that we can find

We did our testing on XP-SP3 Spyware Platform with all the MS Critical Malware Updates installed

After blocking ALL incoming and outgoing data in the firewall. Security Essentials Completely Updates from the Internet just fine while we try to block it in the firewall

In fact, the firewall never gives you a warning of any kind!

To have a piece of Malware like Security Essentials opening Back doors into your Operating System without warning is something Terrorists do!

To then warn you that Everybody Else is Malware and Spyware "Except Microsoft" is a Monopoly of Extortion, Terrorism and Slavery

OCCUPY THE NET!

BAN ALL MICROSOFT PRODUCTS NOW!

Don't listen to the THOUSANDS of people saying I'm the loon with the tinfoil hat!

They are not your friends!
Just try it for yourself and understand how big this problem really is before you listen to those who would do this to you

Well you certainly won't find the problems unless you try it

That's what security EXPERTS do!

But, there are a lot of people on this site who never try any of the tests I've outlined

They would rather dictate reality based on what they WANT to believe

Maybe you should listen to them...

I just tried it for myself w/NIS 2012, and it couldn't update...

Sorry, but I'm one of those thousands

Google is a severe, exploitative threat. Just not the way Microsoft AV meant it.

Yea if 'shit' happens repeatedly its kinda suspicious. I bet if google had a bug where it redirected searches for hotmail to gmail page congress would beg (fine) google for millions.

+1. Microsoft has been acting especially hostile-like toward Google over the last year. I am at least 50% convinced this "accident" was part of a long-term campaign to make make life difficult for google, though in reality the only ones that look stupid are the people at MS.
