Avira closes down its forum


Recommended Posts

Perhaps the only way they knew to protect their forum website from hackers was to shut it down :rolleyes:


It wasn't too long ago that the Ubuntu forums were hacked, the end of July I think. Something like 1.8 million accounts compromised and the forum shut down for almost two weeks. A black eye for Canonical, raising the question that maybe their version of Linux isn't as secure as they claim it to be.

To get help with Avira now you either have to use other forums and hope someone is a user there or you have to register with Avira Answers or use your e-shop account info.


The Answers site seems to be just a hope from Avira to use their paid for tech help. Other than that you have to use the faq's .

I forgot avira existed, to some degree.


I completely gave up on them as in no hope after they started packing in a nefarious toolbar, which they also removed from detection in their definitions.
