||In a few hours I'm going to an interview at an antivirus company: a guy contacted me saying that they have a "senior c++ programmer" position available and he saw my name at Brainbench c++ top scores. What I know from the Internet is that the guy is the manager and they are a "research and development lab" of a russian antivirus company (Kaspersky); and many/some (?) employees are guys who worked for Romanian AntiVirus (RAV) that was bought about a year ago by Microsoft.
I had nothing to do with viruses & antiviruses until now. I'm curious what you guy think about this domain. Could it be interesting? Frankly, the virus/antivirus race seems a bit pointless to me -- I belive the solution will ultimately be better OSes and better applications, not an ultra-knowledgeable and up-to-date antivirus. But maybe I'm blind because I'm ignorant about this domain.
So, what do you think?
