Bitdefender Box review: Trying hard to be antivirus for the Internet of Things

You probably have antivirus and anti-malware software protecting your Mac or PC. And you probably curse every time you're prompted to download and install the latest updates, or are reminded to scan your hard drive--especially if you have more than one computer on your network.
