Red face BitDefender Takes Down Windows 64-bit Versions

"BitDefender Takes Down Windows 64-bit Versions.7:50 PM - March 22, 2010 by Marcus Yam
source: Tom's Hardware US .

BitDefender stumbles on protecting 64-bit Windows... in a pretty bad way.

Well, unless it's 64-bits that you've got.
Users of BitDefender antivirus sortware for the 64-bit version of Windows have been encountering severe technical difficulties, as the security software is falsely identifying several Windows and BitDefender files as being infected with a Trojan.

BitDefender posted an update on its website acknowledging the flaw and offered resolution for users of its software.

Some of those affected by the bug report that their systems are rendered completely unusable. IDG Connect quoted users from forums complaining that "EVERY file that is trying to run is getting quarantined … Windows Explorer and even BitDefender update itself is being quarantined. Someone really screwed this one up." "

I've heard that linux community came up with better implemented security in it's latest Linux Mint Gold version, it's actually preventing the user to log in, thus posing 0 risk in contamining the computer with malware! Well done to the open source community!
