Hacker News Re-Imagined

> In general, the desktop antivirus space in 2021 is a mess.

I don’t think that antivirus is helpful in 2021. I think the most important thing you can do is make sure you are all patched and do not run as administrator.

Antivirus is likely to be unable to catch the really bad stuff, and it actually increases your attack surface. In addition, you pay a performance tax all the time. IMO, just not worth it.
