Did Kaspersky Anti-Virus Go On Sale Anywhere This Year Or They Are Officially Done?

Yes, I know they've been removed from BestBuy and other retailers, but did it go on sale ANYWHERE?

What's going to happen to this company? Kaspersky was great for anti-virus!

I've got 1-year left ...

Yup! It's still a great program and I'll continue to use it.

From That Article:
Below is Kaspersky Labs' response to our story:

Kaspersky has changed the process of checking web pages for malicious activity by removing the usage of unique identifiers for the GET requests. This change was made after Ronald Eikenberg reported to us that using unique identifiers for the GET requests can potentially lead to the disclosure of a user’s personal information.

After our internal research, we have concluded that such scenarios of user’s privacy compromise are theoretically possible but are unlikely to be carried out in practice, due to their complexity and low profitability for cybercriminals. Nevertheless, we are constantly working on improving our technologies and products, resulting in a change in this process.

We’d like to thank Ronald Eikenberg for reporting this to us.
