AV - Can we really trust any of them?

AV has always been infiltrated by NSA / FSB divisions to phone home anyway. Plus this on the Reg again, another leaky Amazon S3 bucket and a potential damning data leak affecting credit repair... But its really stuff like this that makes you go, WTF?

If we humans cant even secure what we directly control when it also has spying and military implications. We're doomed! Its all short-termism too. Whether we're talking about senior soldier or suits @ corporations. They can only see dollar signs, quick bonuses and early retirement...
