Privacy, Security, Encryption Hearkening back to the Sony Rootkit brouhaha from a few years ago, a security researcher is claiming in a Network World article that he detected factory-installed keyloggers in two brand new Samsung Laptops. Samsung has made no official response, but a tech support supervisor contacted by the author said that the keystroke logging software was installed by Samsung to "monitor the performance of the machine and to find out how it is being used."

Please show me where in my post I said that *nixes are "magically immune" to malware? Oh that's right, I didn't.

You make a valid point, but you don't have to deliberately misquote me to make it. That's juvenile and makes you out to be less intelligent than you obviously are.

I stand by my original post, wherein I said the same thing as you: It's difficult but not impossible to infect a *nix box.
