  1. I have Bitdefender Total Security and use Chrome all the time. I have not gotten this notice from Chrome to date and I am using Chrome right now. However, I would like to point out that when I first started using Bitdefender Total Security, I wondered about Windows 10 Pro’s Anti-Exploit settings. I have disabled all of Windows 10 Security measures, why would I need them when I have Bitdefender Total Security??? I asked Bitdefender’s Support about Windows 10 Anti-Exploit settings…Should I disable them or not? Bitdefender Support told me to disable Windows 10 Anti-Exploit settings. They said they would cancel each other out and in effect, make the Exploiting doable. I told Support that is what I thought, but wanted to check first.

    So far, I am good to go. Now, I may have issues down the line, but, if I do…I will simply leave Chrome completely. I happen to love Bitdefender. It takes very little resources and I know that I am well protected from the Cyber World. While, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer and the rest have not been protective of me and my computer. It is highly possible that I have gotten the update from Bitdefender, since it is Aug. 25, 2018.

    I learned a long time ago, that having more than 1 Anti-Virus/Malware program on your computer would cause more problems, than solving problems. So, when Windows starting getting into the “cyber-security” aspects of Windows, I opted out completely!!!

  2. Per the article, “Although the move from Google ensures that no rogue
    applications interfere with the Google product, it prohibits security
    solutions like Bitdefender from probing the browser’s memory in search
    for potentially dangerous exploit code.”

    Seems antivirus makers sometimes introduce unintended vulnerabilities to the products and systems that they attempt to protect? Here’s one article (many more for those who care to google around). Leaves “casual users” like me mighty confuse as to whom to trust!
