GNU, GPL, Open Source "Steve Chang, the Chairman of Trend Micro, has kicked up a controversy by claiming that open source software is inherently less secure. When talking about the security of smartphones, Chang claimed that the iPhone is more secure than Android because being an open-source platform, attackers know more about the underlying architecture."

Just a while ago I had a zyxelrouter at a customer that had a "security app" from trendmicro. The thing kept popping up in the middle of any programmsession on windows, it took me 2 days and a lot of emails to get this removed.

So I consider trendmicro-security as malware.
