My wife’s computer also have it, and she loves it, mainly because she doesn’t realize that it is installed :)
liking a security product because it seems like it's not even there strikes me as suggestive that the person in question likes to ignore security or not be bothered by security concerns. for most people this is going to be a recipe for eventual disaster. luis' wife, however, has luis on hand to take care of any malware incidents, so i guess for her it's ok. it's an interesting and probably effective strategy - well played, mrs. corrons, well played.
most people can't marry an anti-malware expert, however, so placing value in product's ability to shut up is the wrong way to think about things for most of us. don't get me wrong, if a security tool is too 'chatty' then certainly that poses a usability problem, but the quest for complete transparency is a symptom of mismatched expectations.
the predominant expectation among consumers is that if they install the 'right' product or combination of products then they can forget about all those nasty threats because they'll be protected. that's just not true, though, and it's never, ever going to be true.
people will actively defend this line of thinking, however, often they say they just want to do X and don't want security getting in the way. imagine if i said i just wanted to get to mcdonald's and didn't want traffic safety to get in the way - would that sound reasonable? not so much, i imagine. part of the reason for that is that most of us realize that following certain procedures on the road actually does keep us safer than we would otherwise be; but another part is that we also recognize that when others don't follow those procedures they put us and everyone else at risk, not just themselves.
what if i were to tell you the same principles apply in computer security? there are procedures you can follow that not only allow you to reach your goal in a reasonably secure way (whether that goal is getting work done or enjoying online entertainment or whatever else you use your computer for). not only that but by not following those procedures, by ignoring security, one actually does put other computer users at risk as well. i'm not just talking about other people who use the same computer, either. back in the days of viruses, when a virus infected a computer that computer joined the set of computers from which that virus could further it's spread. essentially it enlarged the platform from which the virus could attack still other systems. today, in the age of the botnet, the same principle applies. when a machine becomes compromised it get's added to the attack platform and assists in attacks on other systems, whether those attacks are simply sending out spam or sending out more malware or performing distributed denial of service attacks. by pretending like security isn't a concern a user puts not only themselves but all other computer users at risk as well.
now, likening secure computing practices to safe driving does not mean i'm trying to argue in favour of requiring users to have a license to operate a computer (though there are those who suggest that). the fact is that day to day life is full situations where you have to take precautions to increase your safety. just crossing the street calls for the precaution of looking both ways first. even toasters (which i bring up because some people literally think computers should be as simple to use as toasters) have safety precautions you need to follow - unplug the thing before you try to retrieve that piece of toast or bagel that's stuck inside.
i often criticize the security industry for perpetuating the myth of install-and-forget security, but the consumer shouldn't be thought of as blameless. people need to wake up and take responsibility for their own safety and security online, as well as being good online citizens and not putting others at undue risk. seriously, folks, computing without the need for taking active precautions is pure fantasy and it's time you started living in the real world. if you don't take responsibility for keeping yourself safe and secure, you won't be safe and secure - period.
