Was listening to the SecurityNow! podcast and Steve Gibson really grilled Kaseya on their [required AV exclusions.](https://helpdesk.kaseya.com/hc/en-gb/articles/229014948-Anti-Virus-Exclusions-and-Trusted-Apps)
Kaseya isn’t alone in asking for such broad and sweeping exclusions, but as an industry we need to demand better of the vendors. Allowing something like NGAV or an EDR solution to monitor these areas would have likely made a significant impact on the malware. Sadly the door was left wide open and the welcome mat laid out.
