One of the very relevant tidbits in security is that Obscurity does NOT equal Security. Microsoft is stating that while their source code is proprietary they're not depending on the code itself to ensure security. This is an excellent attitude when it comes to securing your final products and goes directly to the claim by open source proponents that open source is fundamentally more secure because anyone can review the source code.

Thousands of businesses use this software. The software is intentionally given access to just about every other system on the network.

When I have questions, or want to check my balances, I call the bank!

You're asking for trouble, when you put all this information on your computer!

Welcome to the World Wide Web, including Nigeria, Somalia, and other dirt poor countries, that are looking for ways to separate you from your money!

Don't buy macafee. I own macafee antivirus multi device yesterday some virus infected by laptop and macafee didn't even detected it.A full system scan detected it but macafee was unable to remove it. Now I purchased eset system security 10,it detected it and removed the virus successfully. I had been using eset 9 earlier and must say eset is better does the job of antivirus unlike macafee which has got only fan following no use
