Just about everybody needs it.
Even Mac users and security professionals (ssshhh, don’t tell them).
But do you choose a free or paid solution for your security needs? I test
one or two twenty or thirty such programs every year and there are some good free antivirus programs out there for sure. And for many people a free antivirus program may be adequate too.
But what if a free antivirus program leads you into a situation that could potentially cost you money?
A lot of money?
I’ll outsource the full answer to that question, and more, to the renowned Brian Krebs who has recently taken an eye opening look at Avast and a company called iYogi.
Update: The power of the internet
Following Brian’s report on iYogi’s apparent business practices Avast have now removed their support service 🙂
