Bugs & Viruses We're well and deep into April 1 now, and if you were to believe some of the reports and hype on the internet, we should've all been paying in bottle caps right about now. As any sane person already saw coming, the Windows worm Conficker didn't do anything. It just kind of sat there, patiently mocking all those who did not update their machines properly.

Listen BlownoseJoke,

Blaming the users for the holes in Windows security is lame. Why are there holes in the security in the first place?


Why are there security holes in Debian? Fedora? OS X?

Because all operating systems have holes, and all need patches. Believing that Windows is the only OS with security holes and patches issued is what's lame. Here are some pages. Read them and become at least a little knowledgeable:


List of recent security updates for Debian Stable:

Fedora 8:

OS X:

FreeBSD:

Windows:

Oh, and please, grow up. I didn't call you any names, I just yelled some common sense at you.
