Microsoft AV advice may aid attackers, researcher warns

Quote:
A security researcher is taking Microsoft to task for advising customers to exclude certain files and folders from anti-virus scanning, arguing the practice could be exploited by pushers of malware.
Microsoft issued the recommendations in October, as a way of improving system performance. They suggested administrators exclude certain files used by Windows Update, Automatic Update, and security features in six different versions of the Windows operating system.
