    alexandrud (binisoft) was always hit hard by piracy. Mostly in the last few years. These are the consequences.

    I guess it is Avast. But it can be someone no one heard of until now.

    Avira. That is the only AV desperate enough to buy something like WFC, especially since their firewall is a joke, literally just a checkbox for Windows Firewall.

    I was thinking that too about all those that donated/registered, it says we can still obtain our 'codes' for installs, but for how long will the new owners keep that? :(
