NTFS has been among us for a long time. But I think that there are many advanced threats
(such as rootkits) that exploit it (MFT, Alternate Data Streams) - all these are methods which
malware use to conceal themselves from the system.
I wonder why is ReFS not pushed mainstream - or another, new file system.
NTFS has security features that benefit Windows, and its ACLs help set permissions and security.
From as far as I know, ReFS allows the modifications of open files and many operations
do not require the file system to be taken down.
So… does actually NTFS provide security benefits, or are they outweighed by the malicious
apps that take advantage of them? How do NTFS and ReFS compare in terms of security benefits?
