    http://www.avg.com/ seems to have been hacked by a Palestinian group called KDMS team.
    Visit KDMS twitter page here: https://twitter.com/KdmsTeam

    For more information on the attack please read here- http://grahamcluley.com/2013/10/avg-webs...n-hackers/

    My question is if the antivirus venders can't secure themselves, how can they promise to protect us?

    EDIT- AVG site is clear now but Avira is still under attack.

    Edit2- Here is an article in softpedia and an ongoing discussion on this hacker's attack.
