Humorous Video Makes Serious Point about Cybersecurity

Jersey City, New Jersey (PressExposure) October 15, 2009 -- "Defend my PC against malware," is not on most people's list of favorite activities. Yet, it is important, both to protect individuals and to prevent the spread of malware. During National Cybersecurity Month, Comodo is educating the public about the need for protective software with its new video "Intervention: Laptop."

The video pays homage to the popular A&E Television series "Intervention," which portrays people whose lives are on a downward spiral, and the redemption of the people who care about them. In this case "Laptop" is infected with malware, and the experts step in.

"We make the point any way we can," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO of Comodo. "This parody is funny. We hope its humorous approach grabs viewers' attention and convinces them to install antivirus and firewall software."
