Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, this clearly needs to get its own item. Yesterday we linked to a story about how Samsung is supposedly installing keyloggers onto its laptops to track user behaviour. Samsung immediately launched an investigation into the matter, and has come to a rather humbling conclusion: the guy coming up with the story is incompetent, and Samsung has the evidence to prove it.

Good Learning Experience for the Public

Most consumers have no clue that many anti-malware programs miss important infections, while many others yield false positives. The lesson -- always install and use more than one anti-malware program for good cross-checking and results verification.

The public seems to have been lulled into a sense of security with MSE and rely on it alone to protect their Windows systems. MSE is an excellent product! But relying on it alone violates the fundamental principle that you need more than a single product to avoid false positives and negatives.

Unfortunately this public attitude guarantees malware problems will continue in the years ahead with Windows computers.
