I was looking for an appropriate recent thread to post this, but failing that, I figured a virus/malware catch-all thread was appropriate.
The founder/CEO of MalwareBytes has just done an AMA on Reddit, answering some interesting questions. (Did not realize the guy was 23 years old. Geez.)
One thing I found interesting is that he seems to think very highly of Avast and less so about MSE. Interesting.
