many of you have heard of the software Avast Anti Virus. Well the company uses its own software and was hacked. As of this post they are trying to find out how the hackers got into their system.
The old saying is true 'if you can get a line out then hackers can get in'.

kind of surprising.

It is great Erebel but the owners were shocked that they were hacked. You should have received an email telling you that your information, as well as everyone else's, may have fallen into the hands of the hackers.

I use the 4.8home version still and the company still issues updates for the virus database with no end in sight for that version.

It's wise to do that.

I have never had any issues with Avast and it seems to get good ratings. I won't stop using a great piece of software just because their forums were hacked...
I didn't even have an account on the forums so no matter to me.

If you bought the software then you had an account on the system somewhere.

@Kuron: What wrong with using the software on a home system?
