Heard of antiviruses being hacked. Safe to use?

So I’ve been using windows defender for a while. No problems. I decided to look up if it was safe enough and there were alot of articles telling to use a free antivirus instead and many reddit comments and quora answers telling to stick with defender.

I am at a dillema. I’ve been researching this for a few hours and decided kaspersky was the one i was gonna use. But then ive read articles on kaspersky and bitdefender getting hacked. Tf should i do?

If i use defender, since most malware makers need to get past defender as the baseline i shouldnt use it.

But, many people say it’s good enough and by common sense and ublock origin, i should avoid most of the websites i could get malware from. And many antiviruses are getting hacked.

Avast: once stole data and stole it, pushes ads alot.

And do these articles actually tell the truth?

Sorry for grammatical errors, i got stuff to do and dont want to spend time researching if i should take 5 mins out of my life to install a program.
