"Here is an interesting article that discusses where AV (anti-virus) programs are developed. I hadn't gave this much thought before reading this article. I use Avast, which comes from the Czech Republic," Jim Hamm gets our attention.
"Now, this isn't something that most of us are going to worry about. But, having said that, I think I would avoid any programs coming from China or Russia. I don't trust either of those countries, and they are definitely not our friends. Lots of recent articles about hackers from China and Russia attempting to spy on us.
"Just a thoughtful, philosophical article for your contemplation...(grin)…" Jim.
