Why doe's drweb have Riskware and Hacktools set to ignore, by default.
Because they are not considered malware.
But if you look carefully at his screenshot , you'll notice that they are both right under "Malware" so Dr.Web considers them malware (malicius software) .
ESET considers such tools as potentually unsafe applications . A user must manually enabled detection/removal of such tools because of their double usage . I think it is the same with Dr.Web - as a user it is up-to-you to activate action against such tools
same with kaspersky "riskware" detection is off by default.
users may use some applications that are concidered riskware. most companies uses some form of remote access program which would be concidered riskware.
This may also be because some such PUA, riskware, etc sometimes try to sue the av companies for labeling their products as malicious. So the av company lets the user decide. At least that is my take on it.
Similar behaviour with several programs.
Same with fprot, report possible unwanted apps is unticked by default
