26134298 story MS To Build Antivirus Into Win8: Boon Or Monopoly? 748 Posted by Soulskill on Monday November 21, 2011 @01:36PM from the efficacy-to-be-determined dept. jfruhlinger writes "Microsoft has quietly announced that it's planning on baking anti-virus protection right into the Windows 8 OS. Users have been criticizing Windows' insecurity for years — but of course this move is raising howls of protest from anti-virus vendors, who have built a nice business out of Windows' security holes. Is this a good move by Microsoft, or a leveraging of their monopoly as bad as bundling Internet Explorer?"
