Kaspersky antivirus takes thousands of Windows XP computers offline (oops)

OK, so it’s no secret that I’m really not a big fan of Kaspersky (if given the option between Norton / Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro or Kaspersky, I honestly don’t know which one I would choose but I would not like any of my options) and this is really a good example of why.  It appears that a recent update from Kaspersky antivirus took thousands of XP (which is still supported through April of 2014) offline.  The fix was to disable the antivirus and roll back the update.  A fix was available in about 2 hours (which is awesome, I have to give credit where credit is due) but this is something that should have *never* happened if proper QC was being done.
