Avast says, 'Yer ship be secure'

You may have thought that 'Talk like a pirate day' peaked a couple of years ago, but security vendor Avast says the concept still has some sea legs. The company rebrands its free security program in 'pirate-speak' for people who like their protection with an eye-patch.

Security vendor Avast takes a cue from its own name and a slightly aged Internet meme to bring you a pirate-themed approach to home computer protection. In honor of the upcoming annual "Talk like a pirate day" on September 19, Avast rebrands its main interface in pirate-speak for people who opt in to the feature through September 22. There's not a lot to the changes, but check out the our slideshow of the four newly rechristened pirate-themed windows in Avast.
