Corrupt call center workers selling your private information for pennies

What a surprise with wages so low there.
Sooner or later I expect that outsourcing will end up costing someone a lot of money, make money for the lawyers and put the company into bankruptcy.

I recently uninstalled Avast 7 free AV which I have been using & recommending since v4 largely because it just became too busy/ambitious/bloated/resource hungry...etc... but the final nail in their coffin was the recent iYogi Fubar-ness/fiasco

https://blog.avast.com/2012/03/15/iyogi-support-service-removed/
We had initial reports of this behavior a few weeks ago and met with iYogi's senior executives to ensure the behavior was being corrected. Thus, we were shocked to find out about Mr. Krebs' experience. As a consequence, we have removed the iYogi support service from our website and shortly it will be removed from our products. We believe that this type of service, when performed in a correct manner, provides immense value to users. As such, over the next weeks, we will work with iYogi to determine whether the service can be re-launched.

That they're actually considering still using this service speaks volumes to me about their (Avast's) business model/marketing strategy. Buh bye Avast, hello M$E


My parting shot to Avast/iYogi.

Very interesting...

Last year I had the 'free' Avast and that is also when I got infected with 'System Tool'. I still have Avast, but its the paid version now, at least for a year.
