In a previous article, we discussed how trojans routinely bypass antivirus. In the article, we also showed a teenager using a $50 program to scramble his trojan to make it unrecognizable by all antivirus. But a hacker recently demonstrated that any trojan could be scrambled beyond recognition with just 10 lines of computer code.
In fact, upon looking at the code, 4 lines are standard requirements for any C++ program. In other words, the actual code itself is just 6 lines.
Consumers literally pay $billions each year for antivirus programs that hackers can beat with just 6 lines of actual code. The antivirus industry promotes the myth that only sophisticated hackers can bypass their products. Meanwhile, hackers can either use a $50 program, or simply do it for free with six lines of actual code. That’s how useless antivirus truly is.
Note: We will share the 6 lines of code with bona fide computer security researchers and journalists only.
