Why is 666 so prevalent in F-Secure?

I have found references of 666 literally everywhere in F-Secure.


The Webinstaller accesses an FTP with 666 as the directory.


The programID's and ProgramNames all have 666.

 

Fhoster has program ID of 666.

 

What's going on? Why 666? Can I get an official response as to why this company seems attracted to the use of 666 everywhere in their product? I won't assume satanists work at F-Secure, but you never know, right?

    Hello!

  • I am so glad you answered this because I really thought it was one of those it was just my posessed computer type of things and I figured I am not bringing this up until someone else posts about it :) LOL

  • The problem is, the answer doesn't make sense.

     

    If 666 is the first part of the packaging program, why do other versions use up to 5 digits? I installed my ISP version of F-Secure, and it had a 5-digit pegged to the entire thing.
