    I read the other day a very interesting article regarding where Antivirus programs are made and does it really matter.

    Given also Bloomberg News recently published an article suggesting that Moscow-based antivirus developer Kaspersky Lab is a tool of Russia’s FSB, maybe we should be a little more aware of whom we trust with protecting our online/digital experience. security etc.

    It all comes down to trust I suppose and I was re-assured to see that an Antivirus malware program was made in the UK, ”Sophos”. (but no real idea if it is any good, or not)  😉

    The US seem to be the main player this market.
