Dear global avast-users,

What is very bad during all this, is that MS and Google,
so actually all of Silicon Valley and Silicon Forest leaves us out in the cold for now.

No more browser updates and patches coming
(developers stay at home/work from home during lock-down, and major companies are rather afraid of espionage).
The economic damage done here in Europe is beyond belief.

YouTube video quality downgraded 25% because of higher demand.
Firefox allowing weak TLS for corona-websites.  :o

We should step up security in these uncertain circumstances with a common threat, not  weaken it.
Cybercriminals and provocative state actors are just waiting round the corner to take advantage of such a situation.
ransomware and fraud flourish as never before.

The fabric of our known societies starts to come loose at the seams.
Let us all be vigilant.
Stay in-doors, keep your distance, the young should take care of the elderly.

Stay digitally safe and secure,

"No we have time to read a book"
I can spend all day in front of a computer screen but, when I pick up a book, magazine or newspaper,
I'll be asleep in 5 min. or less.

Don't believe anything you read and only half of what you see......no matter who prints it or who's showing it to you.
And even less these days

The idea is to learn from the past and not make the same mistakes.
