Privacy, Security, Encryption It's no secret that I'm not a particular fan of antivirus software vendors. Other than the excellent Microsoft offering, I haven't yet seen a single antivirus program that doesn't suck the life out of computers, infesting every corner, making machines slow and full of annoying pop-ups. Still, a single license key for Avast! Pro being shared 774651 times? That's a bit harsh.

As someone who stopped pirating the minute free software became good enough I don't understand the mentality behind the people who do this.

My guess is their the same people who MUST have photoshop, MUST have MS Office, and use the password 123456 as their paypal password.
