Barence writes “Security firm Trend Micro has accused Microsoft of giving malware writers a helping hand by advising users not to scan certain files on their PC because ‘they are not at risk of infection.’ Trend Micro warns that by making such information available, Microsoft is effectively creating a hit list for malware writers. ‘Following the recommendations does not pose a significant threat as of now, but it has a very big potential of being one,’ the company’s researcher, David Sancho, writes on theTrend Micro blog.”
