Hi Dave,I'm no expert, Jan, but I don't think Mac or Linux users need be too
concerned if they had clicked on the link.
I always understood why a Windows PC is very vulnerable
(mainly because there are no protections against root execution),
but, you can still load a user-run virus onto Mac & Linux, can't you?
This has always eluded me as to why virus writers don't write
programs that drop into, say, your home directory, and which execute
as the user.
They could still log keystrokes, websites, take files that the user
has permission for (which is most if not all their data files), etc.
So, I just don't get how a Linux/Max user would be protected all
that much more than a Windows user (other than root privileges).
Can't a virus do damage executing as the current user?
(Certainly I can do a "rm -r *" and that would be devastating to my
