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.

But yeah, I've been running an XP machine for 10 years without an antivirus and haven't got any problems. I guess that's because I don't install every .exe that pass by.


Not being aware of a problem does not necessarily mean you dont have one.

Not all problems found their way into people's machine through installing shaky programs, some find their way through exploits of bugs found on pretty high profile and widely used applications.

The best way to be sure is to reinstall and start afresh, you should do that as soon as possible :-)
