The average user doesn't appreciate antivirus measures... until his PC is
infected and he loses time, money and data. I wouldn't recommend abandoning
AV. The average small business e-merchant doesn't appreciate web site
vulnerability assessment... until his site hosts a phish page or his credit
card database is stolen. Average isn't serving the community well, and (my
opinion), the community has to take the initiative to improve average or
face the possibility of government/regulatory intervention. All that's
needed is for the pain threshold to cross a tipping point.
