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.

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
