Privacy, Security, Encryption "All too often people talk about the disadvantages of the Windows operating system: it has too many security flaws, it is not properly patched, it is not security oriented… Until the much talked about Vista system finally reaches our computers, there will still be plenty of time to protest. However, with the new malware dynamic, the idea that malware is restricted to specific operating systems is becoming anachronistic. It no longer matters whether the victim is a home-user or a company employee. It is now irrelevant whether the system administrator is just someone who lives round the corner or a highly qualified IT manager."

Bill Gates has a new pair of glasses.

I am sorry, but what is an article geared at the most basic of computer users doing on a site geared towards people interested in alternative OS's.

The 'malware' mentioned in this article should be redefined as 'spam' and the article itself re-published as 'things that you should look out for in your email' in the 'News of the World' or USA Today and is definitely not worthy of OS News.
