Had same problem with 2017 version. They gave me an early installation of the Total Security 2018 version, 3 months earlier than my renewal date, which was fair.
I had sent them "screen shots" and copies of the scan results to document my complaint. SEE ATTACHED SCREEN SHOTS Now, the 2018 version is doing likewise. It seems a bit odd that this vulnerability would reoccur over and over again... without either internal or external access to their coding and thereby creating a gaping hole for others (for what purpose?
Sabotage?) to exploit in the future at will. If Kaspersky, based in Russia, was recently deemed to be at risk of sabotage or exploitation by their government and military, we may need to add Bitdefender (based in the Ukraine) as another computer security software to avoid/ban as well.
In conclusion, it seems a bit odd that PC Magazine, CNET and other trusted sites still rate Bitdefender products so highly, and without any mention of similar flaws. Surely, I cannot be the only one to stumble upon these software glitches.
