Another day another rootkit. There was an interesting exploit made public couple days ago, that allows attacker to stay hidden from view point of Windows subsystems in charge of security while having quite a bit of an access to that PC and of course company that identified ability to exploit offering their services to protect PC's ... quite suspicious ... https://thehackernews.com/2021/09/a-new-bug-in-microsoft-windows-could.html
