Worlds Worst Software

Here at UVU they make us install a program called Identity Finder. The purpose is to locate all references to student's social security numbers and their credit card numbers. 

We used to use SSN's for student IDs back in the early 2000's, but not since. Those are gone. I've deleted grading records because of this. 

Ands they run it every week! And when it runs it automatically triggers BitDefender scans of every file!

So when it runs it's a four-hour 100% CPU task, and they install new software during the scan and want a reset so it will start the SSN scan all over again!

Crazy. I wonder how many campus megawatt-hours are spent on this pointless task each week?
