VirusTotal wants YOU (but not you) to join its epic AV whitelist


Possibly shortsighted

I don't know exactly how AV signatures are generated, but if there's any way to force collisions (like with md5), this could be a very bad idea. I'm sure plenty of people would love to have their malware whitelisted because it's identified as a core Windows component.
