Jan 28 is Data Privacy Day at AVAST



Privacy is the set of blinds on your living room window. Security is the lock we have on our front door
You need to learn when to keep those blinds closed to prevent intrusion into your privacy.
You also need to realize that Security doesn’t have to be expensive. If you use avast!, it can be totally Free. :)

ATM's still use XP

http://techbeat.com/2014/01/worlds-atms-still-running-microsofts-windows-xp/

Interesting side story at that link. Although official MS XP support will end on April 8, 2014 as expected, MS has decided to continue support for MSE on XP until July 2015.

Already reported in another topic.

But in all honesty who would install MSE in XP if they already have avast on XP (who are still supporting XP).

No one. MSE is a mediocre product at best. The interesting part (to me) is that MS has decided to extend support to XP via MSE, but not through security updates which would certainly be more beneficial to users.

That was my point, it is more a MS promoting MSE rather than any meaningful extension to XP, it is only an extension of MSE.

FileZilla - Versions found on 3rd party websites steal data. A good reason to download open source software from certified sites.
