Tut tut tut...

Makes me glad I didn't pay for my version of bitdefender.

my BitDefender is just fine, thank you

I use BitDefender for quite some time and had no problems with it. At home or at work.

BitDefender is and will be a very good security company...

I use BitDefender for years now and had never problems with it. It doesn't necessarily mean that if some reseller website was hacked, the products are bad. Bitdefender is one of the best AV companies out there, and it managed to protect me without being annoying.
