Microsoft OneCare pricing is out! Release date: June 2006
Yesterday, Microsoft announced that their OneCare security service would be priced at $49.95 per year. This package will allow consumers to secure up to three computers using a complete suite of security products including a new and improved firewall, antivirus, system tune-up and backup software. The service, which is actually in beta-testing phase, will be released to the public next June according to the OneCare Live official blog.
Several people in the security community have already questioned themselves about this service. Should Microsoft get paid to protect its customers against problems that are caused by their own operating systems?
