Do you participate in KSN, Norton community, Avast community.....
A year or two ago I used not to, but with the latest versions of products it affects protection so I always participate in community/cloud services.
Always, I like to help the vendors.
Sometimes, on my summer vacation i used to test beta av's and report back (EAM V5) but after school started i don't have enough free time xD
Sometimes, if it requires registration I wouldn't bother (unless I really like the software).
Sometimes, Norton Community.
Yup its always my favorite part of the AV. I report files to Rising Security Network, send files to Panda CI servers, and submit data to Microsoft Spynet.
I participate in KSN sometimes only.
Most of the times: No I don't.
Except Wilders Security, I do not.
I Do you participate in Avast community and Wilders
Besides Wilders I do not participate in other AV forums. Wilders have a great diversity and dynamic in my opinion, because we are not hunted by a bunch of Fanboys, who just believe that there is only one solution to the malware menace, theirs and only theirs Av solution . I like diversity, especially when people disagree with me, and can discuss in a constructive plan.
The OP is not asking if you visit other forums.
The question being asked concerns whether or not you participate in community functionality, wherein a vendor asks to anonymously gather pertinent information from your computer.
I believe it is very helpful to the vendor to do this (and thus beneficial to all users), so I am always inclined to agree.
I can see what you mean, it's quite obvious that I have totally misunderstood the question, but that is something that I at least can correct. The answer is definitely yes, i do participate.
Best Regards and thanks Page42 , I must have had a short brain hemorrhage,and then short before it is christmas.
It appears that you aren't the only one who misinterpreted the question.
Best regards to you as well.
I do that with some betas that I have used.
Always, Frequently Im sending samples through ThreatSense.Net or via email to Sophos labs
Yes.. I like to participate always have a good feeling about community stuff
Always. It's the least I can do to try and assist.
Oh, ti got it wrong too I though he asked if i participated in any beta test etc.
Then, if that's the case i always participate in Community Functionality, as someone said above i'm glad to help them improve their detection/software if i can
Now: Norton Community and Avast! Community!
