The story is here http://www.networkworld.com/article/3183587/security/double-agent-attack-can-turn-antivirus-into-malware.html and no it is not related to this problem.
GlassWIre is not an antivirus, so it does not run with the same dangerous privilege levels that antivirus software does. When we made GlassWire we tried to design it in a way so it would have no or limited ability to do harm on its own. We do pay bounties for real security issues https://hackerone.com/glasswire.
For the crashing it has to do with how certain software interacts with GlassWire. Firefox has a similar problem with Nahimic and they changed their software to block it if I remember correctly https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1233556 and we do the same.
I think Nahimic released an update, so our software stopped blocking them so the crashes returned.
Nahimic is a nice company and they have contacted us in the past to try to help.
