From the Image dept.
@20K accounts the reseller site can't be considered minor or incidental in which case there's egg on Avast face for not having competent periodical audits of the reseller site which would have caught everything outside of an 0day that a bad guy could exploit.

Its a shame when you have to hack sites to get things noticed.
But when governments go out of their way to allow such genocides, people get rather angry at those who ignore the injustices in this world. Meanwhile hacking sites gets some media attention to those injustices.
