    Crackers

    Don't you think they should get the death penalty? I don't care if they are 15 yr olds. I think that they should get the leathal injection or assasination just as any terrorist or spy.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    This virus took out my computer and I'm running all the updates. SP2, IE6, etc. I'm seriously questioning my strategy as a programmer. It's obvious that there will never be internet security. I might take my computer offline and just have one computer online.

    Right now Win9X is very safe because crackers are now targeting WinNT/2K. I just think that a programmer has to fight back, should invest some time into thinking. I don't know if I want to support the internet.

    i think i should make shirts whit this on them

    "hacking is not a crime"

    as for the security of win9x boxes they are pretty secure unless your a fool and have file/sharing enabled

    that is unless you run into some of our leet members... but most of us dont care about any personnal doze boxes

    you should be behind a firewall, they put your machine in stealth mode and its very difficult to hack/crack a protected machine. Even better access through a proxy and a software firewall.

    Just set all fireall settings to high, theres o point setting all browser settings to high because your browsing is too restricted ands theres endless warning messages
    firewalls are the key - hardware and software
