[Hard oc] Trend Micro Hit by Massive Web Hack, wow - Page 4

post #31 of 36
...off topic...

there's a big difference between anti-virus software and a company's web server getting hacked. anti-virus programs don't stop hackers. they stop viruses.

It's really humiliating considering that they are selling security software about hacking and stuff. So when people read it they would surely have doubts about trend products because of what happens.

"Avast", free anti-virus, haven't had a virus in years. Remind me again why people are paying for anti-virii programs...

Hey, I just downloaded their anti virus software this weekend. Am I at risk too? Oh the hysteria of it all...lol.

Really! I see people sometimes at local stores asking for advice on what antivirus software they should get. They're like "Well I have Norton Internet Security 2007 but I was thinking of getting Norton Internet Security 2008" to which the sales clerk responds "Well the 2008 version is only $60, and $50/year for the subscription" man, I hate London Drugs, them an their $140 2600XTs sitting next to their $180 2400XTs. Although these are the kind of people who like to open those "Hey_Check_Out_These_Cool_Pics.exe" files they get in their email so they kinda deserve it.

The last malware of any kind (including spyware and adware) I got was W32.Blaster 3 years ago when I decided it wasn't worth the effort to unplug my ethernet while doing a first boot of XP SP1. In minutes my desktop had about 14 icons relating to online poker, viagra, and cialis

(To the XP/Windows haters I'd just like to point out that the SP2 install disks don't have this problem at all)
