Security Hiring Crisis
I don't know much about security - do your CISSP, CAP, CISM & CRISC certifications qualify you to scan for antivirus?

Overly critical in interview
Yeah, a lot of people understandably think that saying, "Yeah, I'm already seeing vulnerabilities; you guys need to do this and this," will just impress the interviewers; in reality, it ticks them off and makes them think the candidate is boorish.

But therein lies the problem of the job interview. People aren't interviewing to take a job doing job interviews. They're interviewing to do a job. Maybe being bad at a job interview -- to a certain extent -- can and should be forgiven if everything else looks good.
