Oh yes, good point.
I don’t much about what is happening around white hat hackers. But wasn’t there a famous one that got hired by Microsoft?
I doubt it. But in all fairness, it's not just MS, but also other security companies like Symantec and SentinelOne who make big design errors, see link.

Forced an update search in Settings and got an update to the Antimalware platform. It's too soon probably for a changelog but I def. allowed the update to happen. This is my Windows 10 drive, not 11.
Does anyone have info on this yet? The last entry to discuss changes in the Microsoft blog was August 30th. Prob too early.
Mine updated automatically today on W10 and briefly gave an error message telling me to "activate" Defender.
Whoa, really. What caused that, you wonder? Hopefully it doesn't happen any more, right?

OK, great, thanks a lot for the info, Krusty!
