    First off, we have this little gem:

    AVG Proudly Announces It Will Sell Your Browsing History to Online Advertisers

    Now, if that's not bad enough, this whopper shows up.

    Issue 675 - google-security-research - AVG: "Web TuneUP" extension multiple critical vulnerabilities - Google Security Research - Google Project Hosting

    So, now we have a so called security company installing something that is unacceptable as a security risk. This thing is a prime candidate for mitm (man in the middle) attacks.

    Must. Kill. AVG.

    I'm glad I've never used it. Obviously, never will. Nobody who knows anything about computers will ever use it again. Unfortunately about 95% of the public knows nothing about computers except how high the price and how big the monitor.

    I used it years ago while it was still a good program.

    I used Windows years ago when it was still a good program. I'm running Debian on my desktop now.
