Nowhere did I bash MS. I use, and am fine with Windows.I already saw that. Could be he thinks, and do many other *NIX
proselytizers aka Microsoft bashers, that his OS is immune because it
has not been worth the time to target. Linux has too small a market
share at a meager 1.25% for a desktop OS. If you're going to build an
army of zombies, you don't want to waste your time targeting the
smallest number of hosts.
Not what I said, was it? Now you're making up stories again.Paladin said:Nowhere did I bash MS. I use, and am fine with Windows.
Still fleshing out your story.Apparently you see your mistake, and are trying to save face
Nope, down to just 2 (other than my active on-access scanner - Avast),4,5,or 6 different malware scanners?
Definitely, in thinking one security product affords all theLOL.
Thread is aging, BUT I have to call BS here. There is NO such thing asNo, all one needs is to be careful. The only way I can get an
infection on my main PC is by installing it myself!
I have never had an infection in 27 years of using the Internet butThread is aging, BUT I have to call BS here. There is NO such thing as
"just being careful" any more! Yes being careful is still a good thing,
but not the be-all as it used to be. I have been attacked going to a
good well known site that was compromised, more than once. Thank
goodness the anti-virus was up to date and working while using Winders,
and caught most of them. However, up to date or not, I have been nailed
anyway. Not one product is the be-all period. With Winders, one HAS to
have several products installed for protection, and cleaning. NEVER two
anti-virus programs, but other supplements. (i.e. Malwarebyets etc.) You
either are lucky, or "pulling the wool over" cuz, I have seen the best
of the best anti-virus programs fail to catch nasties. I also call BS on
"The only way I can get an infection on my main PC is by installing it
myself." (If it is a Winders PC) I have seen too many infections occur
on so-called "secured" computers/systems to believe that. One nailed our
business system just last week. (9/12) Got 'er fixed, but a shining
example of what can happen even being "careful," and using the best of
the best software. So, I say quit promoting the "being careful" only BS
today, as that is clearly NOT enough. More like, be prepared, cuz yer
gonna get nailed sooner than later these days period! I question anyone
who claims they haven't ever been attacked, or scans find nothing ever,
their system is always clean. BULL! Hehe, MY system IS always clean,
(Not a Winders system), I don't use Winders unless I absolutely HAVE to
period. Much safer that way. In 8 years, I have never had an infection.
There is anti virus programs for this OS, and I have scanned for the
heck of it many times, but NOTHING has EVER been found, save an infected
email received from someone.
I agree.Thread is aging, BUT I have to call BS here.
