Antivirus Self-Protection

It is common for today’s malicious software to deliberately target antivirus protection by switching it off or neutralizing it in order to gain full control over a system. In these circumstances antivirus products must have a reliable self-protection system.

The independent research project Anti-Malware Test Lab carried out tests on the self-protection systems of the most popular antivirus products. The Kaspersky Lab product, which repelled all attempts to interrupt its functionality, was declared the best.
