Let's see, I don't think anyone is against any country. There is talk about what happened with CCleaner and nobody is against the Czech Republic. I think that there are intelligent people in MT to get into those things.
the issue is over 2 years old and the typical person does not even know it happened let alone come to a place like thisHow is "inappropriate"? Do you seriously believe we are alone in here and that no one from outside ever crosses these posts? Or that new users never join that have never participated in these discussions?
the point is that politics are involved and anything that broaches politics is inappropriateI don't feel there is anti-US feeling on here, or Russian for that matter. When a major AV vendor has potentially been involved to some degree untoward politics it's interesting - None of the above will change my feelings that Kaspesky is among the best AV there is - However, it's still of interest especially when more information comes to light. If someone doesn't want to discuss issues to do with AV, maybe your in the wrong forum?
that is because the US govt is not involved in CCleanerLet's see, I don't think anyone is against any country. There is talk about what happened with CCleaner and nobody is against the Czech Republic. I think that there are intelligent people in MT to get into those things.
there is several factors why this affair became such a huge drama:Let's see, I don't think anyone is against any country. There is talk about what happened with CCleaner and nobody is against the Czech Republic. I think that there are intelligent people in MT to get into those things.
Yeah, I would think so. I am a long time Comodo user and despite all it's bugs, it does specifically ask before uploading files. Not sure why Kaspersky does this forced upload thing.It doesn't really matter who is the victim.
The file shouldn't be automatically uploaded (if it is) without the consent but asking consent in a case by case basis, like after a scan. This is simple logic.
If they cared to do this, Kaspersky won't be in such a bad situation. Instead of whatever Eula or warnings, most people don't even read.
sadly, it is unneeded for a security solution and serve more as an "acceptable" ("and i push it down your throat") data mining feature.I agree on this, but Kaspersky acts like this for everyone in.
the matters surrounding Kaspersky and its relationship with the Russian or US govt is not a major life decisionMost (all) of the major decisions we make is life are done without all the information we would like, as I have four children a child trusts on instinct & often limited information as we do too, so does my Cat - Most people realise about the media, that's what makes life so interesting
if you do not like my opinion you have the right to ignore it
I agree with you, but personally have learned something reading this thread. talking about a more than two year old controversy does not change anything on the outcome, so it has a high level of "you can stare a cow in its ass, but that won't change anything on the outcome" (as we say in Dutch)". When forum rules allow this topic to be discussed than every member has a choice to participate or ignore this topic.the point is that politics are involved and anything that broaches politics is inappropriate
it is silly to think that any govt will not use a domestic av for international intrigue
you don't put your enemy's software on your critical systems
that is an inflmmatory statment worthy of Facebook or Twitter
this place social media ?
politics are inappropriate because that is all some people need to justify bashingBeing neutral here, I don't think you can have a discussion like this without some form of political talk. There is definitely a technical aspect to this as well as a political aspect. I am not taking sides, but IMHO as long as the discussion stays friendly and respectful, I don't see any issues. Since this is a security forum and this involves a major security vendor, this topic will be discussed both technically and politically. As I've already said, as long as it stays friendly and respectful that's all that matters.
I hear what you are saying, but in all honesty I just had a quick re-read of this entire thread and I don't see anything offensive, or anyone bashing others politically. The only thing remotely close is some back and forth on the technical side of things, but nothing offensive. In all fairness you are the only one that seems to be worked up on this and you are the only one here that seems to be offended.politics are inappropriate because that is all some people need to justify bashing
as i say much earlier, none of us have the real facts because only intelligence agencies have them everything in media is dramas
already people make many offensive posts in this thread - all politically motivated
there is more than one Kaspersky fanboy
there is more than one anti-US
there is no value in keeping discussion of irrelevant and inappropriate material
