Oh no, look at all the hacks that's been happening lately! That's right! I have a anti-virus installed, that will definitely save me from determined hackers alright, I have nothing to worry about!

Not to go too off topic, but, did they ever find Kaspersky's son after he was kidnapped?

I was wondering the same thing earlier, I don't know though.

Since when is getting a trojen/keylogger/malware a hacker "targeting" you? Anti-virus works, no one is going to specifically target you, unless you're some important person. (I'm guessing that's not the case)

Kaspersky's son was freed quite quickly, http://www.themoscownews.com/busines...188610779.html

I prefer MSE for Anti-Virus and COMODO for Firewall. Both are free.

Virus rarely attacks me now, even without an AV, but just to be in case I installed MSE.

Paid AV's are a scam in my opinion as they're as good as some free antivirus, if not better.

Anti-virus sells the illusion that you're protected. Since many viruses that target end users are zero-day having a AV is as good as not having one.

All it takes is the media or online news report to say virus attacks are on the rise then people will be scrambling to purchase AV software.

AV companies profit off your fear just like a insurance company, getting you to fear the "just in case" scenario. Works like a charm.
Shhhhh!

You statement would be correct if it wasn't based on the half false premise above. Actually the premise contains the word "many", so you even admit your own argument is not entirely solid.


First, even zero-day threats have a better chance of being detected by the anti-virus by means of "suspicious behaviour" than not having an Anti-virus at all.

Second, do you know how many people have their computers unprotected ? If you bring an infected usb pen from work / school / friend, and don't have an AV installed, how do you know if the pen doesn't contain an old virus, that could have easily been caught ?

Third, AV packages protect you from infected sites. Some of them are actually legit you know, but are infected by a third party, and take advantage of some browser vulnerability that an AV company may be faster to patch than the browser maker.

A massive 94.388kb update! That is larger than the installation file! What is going on ? If the program is new it shouldn't require such a massive database update, let alone tell me everything is fine, when the program was obviously out of date. Could this be a massive program update, to the engine, or something ? But if it is, why not put the updated file on the server ? But if it's a program update then it would probably ask me to reboot, which it didn't. All I have to say is it's strange.
No sure if serious....

I don't have insurance, but I have GOT to comment on this. Good luck paying for your bills when someone crashes into you and something in your body goes snap crackle pop LOL.
