Russian agent Ed Snowden endorses a/v vendor FSecure.

Snowden @Challenge_rs said out of all AV firms, he would trust @FSecure Fi most as no power-government ties, our fan!

FSecure thinks that's awesome.

Great to hear. When talking about who do you #trust most in our industry, @FSecure according to #Snowden

What Ed knows is that a/v is helpless when the threat is a human on the inside with too much access and too little supervision. If you trust Ed, and rely on anti-virus to keep your data secure, the joke is on you.

UPDATE: 20 June 2015. Looks like FSecure is having second thoughts about embracing Ed Snowden's endorsement, or at least realize it doesn't look so good. No worries, here's is what the deleted post looked like:

Ed Snowden endorses FSecure. Because why not? AV is pointless when the threat is inside, a truth Ed embodies.

I mean, that wasn't just some FSecure employee tweeting about Ed. No, it was a Genuine Official Promoted FSecure Tweet™
