    Default BitDefender update cripples 64-bit versions of Windows

    From Bleeping Computer:
    A devastating update by BitDefender was released on Saturday for their anti-virus engine that has caused crippling problems for users of x64, or 64-bit, versions of Windows. This update has caused BitDefender to flag Windows system files and BitDefender files as the Trojan.Fakealert.5 infection. Depending on a users action settings for when a virus is found, this has led to numerous Windows system files being added to the BitDefender quarantine. When this happens, these computers are not be able to boot into Windows.
