The recent discovery of vulnerabilities in antivirus software by enSilo sparked curiosity among the Morphisec Labs team. After a long deep dive and to our surprise, our research found that the vulnerability wasn’t an unintentional flaw in the code, it was a feature! Here is how it works.
One of our favorite things to do is to reproduce exploits in our research labs. We do this for two main reasons: first, because we are naturally curious, and second, to constantly ensure that our solution prevents these exploits natively (spoiler: it does ;).
