Briefly on Confickr

Not that I am trying to restart the “AV is dead” frenzy (everybody is sooooooooooo tired of it, anyhow), but, pray tell, me how come Confickr was such a “remote detection/scanning” issue and not a “malware/anti-malware” issue?

I am definitely impressed by the Honeynet Project work, but how come that after having AV deployed and updated on [supposedly] 98%+ systems out there, “scan for Confickr” was HOT!, but "your AV will protect you” was NOT?

Just a thought…
