I went to their home page, but got completely turned off. First the database update service is subscription only, for a rather nominal fee of $30/year. And they want you to join their mailing list, but to subscribe, you first have to (apparently) be a member in good standing in google groups, which itself is password protected. I couldn't even get to the ml archives as everything was behind the password login. FireFox 12 conveniently filled in my gmail username, and a password row of dots that were invalid. The row of dots was about 2x the size of my password I would use to log into their webmail server, something its been in excess of a year since I had to log in and nuke a malformed message that not even fetchmail could be coerced into fetching, which is how I suck my email here and have been for most of a decade, relatively little from gmail in comparison to the volume I pull from the tv stations server. I am the retired Chief Engineer there, and have an account for life.
I don't mind them making money from the update subscription service, but I mind the hiding of the whole thing behind a google login, even for the so-called mailing list they want everybody to migrate to. I mind that, a lot. There is a vulgar saying that ends with "you, and the camel that rode in on you" that applies here. Top that off with its now being the preferred IDS at DHS & TSA, who is busy blowing taxpayers money by the billions for no visible benefit to the flying public, and I see red and just not in the ink in their budget.
Now I am a bit smarter. I also have at least 4 more firewall layers between me and the cable modem, so I expect I can muddle along for quite a while given that the root login here needs most of the universes remaining time for John T.R. to crack.
In fact, given the frequency of updates to clamav, it blows me away that clamav doesn't have a hand out to pay for the bandwidth & hardware to service clamav!
Again, many thanks & Cheers, Gene
