Klingon Anti-Virus from Sophos

The trusted security company Sophos has released a version of their anti-virus software, fully translated in to Klingon, an imaginary language spoken by Klingons in the fictional Star Trek universe. According to Sophos, they translated the program in to Klingon, because ‘their routine monitoring of sub-space transmissions alerted them that the loss of the Klingon battle cruiser Klothos is a result of trying to remove VBS/PeachyPDF-A from the battle computer using M'swoN'kar after Commander Kor opened an attachment from the system S'cam-419’.

The moment Sophos found out this, they knew they had to help. Its engineering team created this software by translating all of the text in the software from English to Klingon in order to help them. (English version also available)

Any one can use this program (without deactivating your current anti-virus software) to perform a quick on-demand scan to find out and remove viruses, spyware, adware, zero-day threats, Betazoid sub-ether porn diallers and Tribbles that your existing protection might have missed.

Sophos's Klingon Anti-Virus requires Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000 (includes 64-bit editions)

As this software uses the Sophos Anti-Virus detection engine, it should not be installed on machines already running Sophos Anti-Virus.

During installation, you will be asked for updating credentials (username and password) which will be available in the release note. Updates will be available for 30 galactic standard days!
