Do Klingons need anti-virus software?

Doesn't look like this has officially launched yet, but you can certainly download it - and it is in Klingon! (as far as my feeble attempts to read it can see)

Yep, Klingon antivirus software - whatever next? A Ferengi defragger?

I love the readme which comes with it:
Klingon Anti-Virus is unable to remove Rogue Nanites from
the central core. To remove establish negotiation using Android or system running OS X 10.6 and deposit on nearest uninhabited moon
Has anyone actually tried it against real viruses yet?

Well, here's hoping this Klingon anti-virus program is better developed than than Tribble-predators, otherwise a legion of their best warriors will descend upon the hacker's planet to eradicate everyone!
