All you did was add more spam? 12.235.42.131 (talk) 22:53, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Just wondering if a "criticisms" section on the main page would be NPOV or not[edit]

SSL/TLS "MITM attack"[edit]

When helping a friend get a custom CA cert to be trusted in Chrome, I noticed that sites using certificates signed by the custom CA were still not trusted. I then realized that the browser was seeing a forged certificate, and learned about this (Bitdefender having inserted its own CA cert in the browser, and acting as a man-in-the-middle). It seems that an additional step is needed for Bitdefender to also trust the custom CA, and that it actively monitors SSL/TLS connections (for malware scanning, but this also means that a compromised installation is a spyware haven). A good and a bad thing at the same time, but technically significant. Possibly not ready for inclusion in the article yet without more references, but here is more text describing the situation [[1]]. 76.10.128.192 (talk) 17:19, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

incompatible with comodo firewall?[edit]

hmmm, that's news to me. i'm running bitdefender free antivirus with comodo firewall, and they work perfectly together. perhaps this was a past problem that has been fixed? Newtonsghost (talk) 01:44, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Bitdefender. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

"The company claims"?[edit]

The language used throughout the article, "the company claims" this and "the company claims" that, seems rather unusual. I can't see this kind of language being used in the articles of any other antivirus software, only this one. Why the difference in tone? It almost feels like some kind of passive-aggressive attack on this software in particular; a tone that is not used anywhere else. It almost feels like the "neutral point of view" language is abused to indirectly discredit this particular company or something. I don't understand why.

Just search for the word "claim" in the articles of any other antivirus software, and contrast it to this one. The difference is striking, and incomprehensible.

I don't believe this is a true NPOV. It almost feels like some kind of attack on the reputation of the company masqueraded in seemingly NPOV language. (Even if that was not the intent of the author, it still gives that impression, which is what matters.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.251.36.248 (talk) 05:49, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

@84.251.36.248: I've reworded a bit of the lead but it's still promotional. This article might need a whole rewrite. Anarchyte (work | talk) 05:53, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
