Free security versus reality: This software you have recommended is what I like to call crapware that is likely spyware for a national intelligence agency. The software doesn’t add any unique features or enhance the system beyond what is already included for free by the vendor and it adds tracking software and national security agency back-doors. Billy Bob is correct in that the source of our software and hardware is more than just a little suspect.
As a short lesson in the reality of free software security tools, consider Kaspersky’s Internet Security Suite: Internationally lauded as an excellent Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware software package, but did you know that Eugene Kaspersky is the only person in the history of the KGB (now FSB) to ever be released from an initial tour of service in order to start a private company? Were you aware that other national security agencies world-wide are envious of what they consider to be the world’s largest voluntarily installed national security intelligence agency run bot-net? Many nations have followed this model and an overwhelming number of the free security suites out there today are in fact national intelligence tools. This makes you a tool in recommending one. Sorry for the diatribe, but my PhD major is in information security so I might have done a little too much research in this area.
Strange that you would recommend a Communist Chinese program yo your readers. You obviously have never studued COMMUNISM. These people are NOY your friends.
Well, many parts of the computers and electronics are manufactured in China. Even many iPhone parts are made in China or assembled there. BTW I am not advocating communism in any way. Its just a piece of free software that some people may find useful 🙂
