a rather good point
Just what in the f is malware anymore? Is it the intentionally designed back doors in otherwise standard software and equipment?
Are some iterations of DRM malware? (literally yes, plus sony rootkits lol)
One of the most notorious pieces of software in recent times, WannaCrypt, isn't even really ransomware. Its 'wipeware' (uses system's own functions against it) acting as ransomware would.
Thank goodness for GDPR though. Its at least drawing a line in the sand. Hell my company has two paragraphs in their privacy statement about how they protect your data from the US government (even while using their infrastructure). Not trading in PI is the best practice and you have to go far away from the US to get that.
