I'm only saying.... I wish Avast would NEVER EVER merged or partnership with Norton/Symantec.

Edit:- IF I'm not mistaken since the last CEO left Avast used to work for Norton/Symantec, before Ondrej Vlcek (Vlk) took over as Avast CEO

There is no Norton/Symantec

Symantec's enterprise security business and name was sold to broadcom in 2019

You just have to click on the link to understand.
<snip>

I never said you were.

Clicking on the link, effectively does nothing as you can't get to the article without having subscribed to the Washington Post.  Yes, they have a limited free service, but you still have to subscribe to it to be able to read the article.  I have absolutely no intent to subscribe just to read this article.

I don't understand .... I am European and I don't subscribe to this newspaper, but I regularly read articles: I just have to click to accept the terms and conditions and I read. Example>>>>>>:Military-grade spyware licensed by an Israeli company to governments to track terrorists and criminals was used in successful hacking attempts on 37 smartphones belonging to journalists, human rights activists, business leaders and two women close to slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to an investigation by The Washington Post and 16 media partners.

The phones were on a list of more than 50,000 numbers concentrated in countries known to monitor their citizens and also known to have been clients of the Israeli company NSO Group, a fast-growing and largely unregulated global leader in private spyware. industry, the investigation revealed.

The list doesn't identify who put the numbers on it or why, and it's unclear how many phones were targeted or monitored. But forensic analysis of the 37 smartphones shows that many display a close correlation between the timestamps associated with a number on the list and the initiation of surveillance, in some cases as brief as a few seconds.

Forbidden Stories, a Paris-based nonprofit journalism organization, and Amnesty International, a human rights group, gained access to the list and shared it with the news outlets, which conducted further research and analysis. Amnesty's security lab conducted the forensic analysis on the smartphones.

Well I live in the UK and I can't read the articles and I wouldn't subscribe or if the options was there (I didn't see it) to accept their terms and conditions, I wouldn't give then that permission.

Though if the extract you have posted is a small part of the article, then as Bob said, I too don't think it is relevant (on topic) for this topic.

It isn't relative to this topic. It's actually spamming this topic.

Hello friends, I am on many American and European forums, in my life, I have never "spammed" a topic, I was only referring to what Bob 3160 said here when he defined this topic by "speculation":


« Réponse #7 le : 17 juillet 2021, 14:04:15 »
and I posted this subject which is controversial in Europe because here too one can think of speculation. Starting from this postulate, everything is speculation.... ;)

Hi sekgrranin,

Your example in posting #20 here is not speculative by any way, it is utterly and completely unrelated to what eventually may or may not materialize in London coming August, resulting in such a possible merger or not.

Whenever you want to you should start discussing NSO's Pegasus 'sec' with another thread, but that may even land you further to be in speculative waters. C' est le ton qui fait la musique. We can only guess at your intentions doing so.

And wasn't it Napoleon who said that history was just comprised of a bundle of merely fabulations and facts, that all parties involved could agree upon? How right l' Empereur was there, when he said that.

All forums have their own rules. Please respect this forums rules.
I didn't define the topic as speculation but some of the responses.
Please, stick to facts.

That option is not available to you, it's also unlikely to be deleted due to others being able to have their say.
