AVG to flog your web browsing, search history from mid-October

Re: Market place?

I suppose the difference between AVG and Google is that AVG is in a position to process system scans and compile a list of software (and versions) that you use. Could that data be intercepted and analysed for security holes that can be exploited?

Sure I am concerned that google has linked my work search history to my home and phone search history, but they do not get to scan my harddrive for the information.

"Your privacy is important to us" is a bit of misnomer really.
