Can't they find something better to do? Honestly now. What a waste of time. Go tag a building or something. I hate getting viruses and such. I just recently had to formatted my hard drive. Now I have great virus protection. Nothing like learning the hard way. I urge everyone to pay the $15 and renew your definitions. Too bad people don't put the time into something a little more helpful to the world, but what are you gonna do?

or you could ditch the insecure OS family and go with Mac OS or Linux..

the first best thing is to not use windows, the next best thing isnt an option. :eek:
True. But windoze is convenient at the moment.

if dealing with viruses in convenient, then enjoy your cake. :wave:
Well, my chemistry class software didn't come Mac capable, and passing a class is more important than figuring out a new OS. So, yes, I will enjoy my cake.

Exploit for exploit all are about the same in terms of security. Unless you are running a nix machine chrooted locked into user space which there is still problems depending on versions of openssh and things. The difference still comes down to a few things. script kiddies scanning ip ranges still know they have a higher chance of hitting a windows machine then nix or OSx for worm based attacks. And same with web exploits. The payoff right now is bigger to gain windows machines cause there is more of them. With the gain OSX has taken there has been a big increase in the amount of exploits being published for it.

Computer security still comes down to the user to secure the machine. Even looking at the exploits most of them still need some sort of user action. It could be excepting an active x applet. or clicking on something that was auto downloaded in safari
