If you are using AVG, F-Secure (F-Prot), Sophos, ClamAV, BitDefender, Avast or any such easy-to-download antivirus software for your PC, it’s time you sat up and took notice. An information security company set up by IIT Kharagpur engineers has found hackers using these antiviruses to break into the system.

“An attacker first crafts an email with malicious payload and sends it to the target user.
