Windows Security Center API reverse engineered
« on: May 24, 2024, 04:39:32 pm »
Another case of security by obscurity is revealed: the Windows Security Center API is protected by an NDA. Someone had a bit of fun with reverse engineering the API and published a small tool (https://github.com/es3n1n/no-defender).

In this case I think it's justified, years ago MS found so much junk that wanted to do unsavoury things turning the built-in AV off that they made it hard to do it easily.  By "unsavoury" I don't mean actual malware but more legit but annoying stuff that wanted to do things that were in the vendor's interest but not the user's interest.
