Re: We wont pay for data slurping pesterware

I admit my company is solely responsible for AVG monetizing the free version. Hang me. Hang me now. My god man get laid and soon.

My low position in a smallish business, meant that I did not have the leverage with the management to get the budget I needed. I could have just let it go unprotected and then you would have bitched if my network turned into a botnet that brought down your ivory tower.

My initial step has resulted in the education and leverage that I needed to make it better and legit. It also compelled my boss to put a priority upon it. Sometimes you have to play the long game.
