Re: Anti virus
As crazy as it might sound, if you do not write the code, there is no telling what the code is actually doing in secret.  I try to pay attention to who wrote it, and what their reputation is.  If the company gives away apps geared toward businesses, and is also the same group responsible for distributing malware (which you can research on the internet), then there is a real good chance the free apps are not going to be friendly apps.  Also pay attention to where the data is stored.  If you use an app and the data is going to a server in one of the 26 malicious nation-states known for hacking, that would be a great app to avoid, no matter how many people like to use it.  I feel that more and more companies are going to move toward writing custom software solutions in the future.

Anti virus
I just dont get it why people keep on creating these malwares to cause damage to others. Its just terrorism. Ive been buying software for almost every year. But since I purchased ESET Antivirus, I was stucked with it. I mean, I get satisfied with its perfomance. Lets see if it will cause me to buy more antivirus

I still predict more ones in the future with new technologies
Yes and it's not finished. Most of these fails are still current security shortfalls today and the article on Linkedin's hack highligh it perfectly. Hackers will still have fun next years as with the rise of new technologies, web languages and devices, IT vulnerabilities keep on emerging in the same time. We can't count on users to detect them, it's not their job. What can we do ? Prevent most of them, and try to react asap for the others... But let's be realistic : we'll never be abble to make a 0 fails world.
