Personally this test for 'bare minimum browser security' fails for avast users as it suggests using HTTPS Everywhere, which effectively lowers your protection in avast as the web shield doesn't monitor https traffic. So I feel https should never be forced and only used when the page/link is genuinely meant to be https.

I also don't see a healthy dose of common sense and scepticism on the part of the user.

@David
There are probably a few other points in that article that we don't agree with.
We are also smart enough to use avast!.
There are still many people out there, who either use no AV protection or think
that their 15 day trial that came with their 1 year old computer is still protecting them.
I run into this every time I address an audience.  :'(

For the most part much of it is common sense, but we all know that it seems to be in short supply now.

Ok We got the voice behind Avast! in Spanish. Her name is Joanna Rubio.

http://blogs.lainformacion.com/futuretech/2012/09/07/chica-del-antivirus/

Now we are looking for her accomplices in English or any other language. Any information leading to their locations will be appreciated.

hmmm... Looking for a video where she actually says something like “Avast! virus database has been updated”. May be too much to ask.
