    I wonder how much Kaspersky is paying for this advertisement, since you must BUY Kaspersky security software in order to get the FREE rescue disk.

    Did Obama's iPad Just Get Hacked?
    By Chris Taylor | Mashable – Tue, Sep 4, 2012
    http://news.yahoo.com/did-obamas-ipad-just-hacked-155359596.html?_esi=1

    In case you missed it, a hacker group called AntiSec announced Tuesday it had grabbed the identifying numbers of 12 million iPhones and iPads -- and to prove it, released a million of those IDs to the public.
    Now it seems the hackers may have nabbed the most high-profile prize of all -- the unique string of code used to identify President Obama's iPad. (Call it the First Tablet.)
    The suspected Obama ID, first spotted by the blog RazorianFly, has not been confirmed by the White House. But it would make sense, since the hack allegedly came from a government laptop -- specifically that of FBI Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl, a supervisor in the FBI’s Regional Cyber Action Team.

    Why spend money when you can get a free rescue disk from Distrowatch?

    Or download MalwareBytes, Security essentials, Spybot S&D and Avast or AVG. All of which are free and work as good or better (for malware/spyware) than kaspersky
