Seriously, where do you people get these viruses? I still hope to see a computer virus, but after spending almost 20 years with computers, I have yet to see one. Coming to think of it, I think my parents computer got infected once about 6 years ago, but I'm not sure.
You cannot get viruses from browsing the web, unless you use a really old, buggy and unpatched browser.I cannot verify or deny this claim about game dev but my viruses did show up after browsing the site.
The hacking of this site really doesn't tell us anything about viruses.he recent hacking we received ought to further solidify the fact that nothing is safe on the internet.
I don't know what I'm arguing about, really. Of course some people consider viruses a threat and it's good that AV program exists. I just haven't ever seen the need for it personallty. I do an occasional online scan once a year or so and nothing ever shows up.
