Re: About time

And I haven't seen (other people's) AV catch a single genuine threat the whole time.

I call rank bullshit!!!

AV may not be the solution to everything and there sure are threats slipping through, but given the current paltry state of the "industry" (more like a bunch of idiot people that should be Godwin'd by fast track to terminal reeducation camps and that really should have decided to start a career in creative fantasy writing or "modern" painting instead of going into IT) they take on the role of necessary seat belts. Won't protect from a car mugging or an encounter with a trucvk, but protects against the usual vagaries (and I get warning about these in my mailbox every week as someone has again decided to CLICK ON SOMETHING!!)
