An advert claiming that hackers would soon be extinct due to the
security of Microsoft software was pulled in South Africa for breaching
advertising standards by making unsubstantiated and misleading claims.


"Microsoft fully maintains that its software is able to fulfil the task of
keeping hackers and viruses out, making the customers' data safer than if
kept in a safe."
