They've been sacrificing security for usability for years - it will bite them in the a## eventually.

ti's all a cat and mouse game.

hackers = cats
services = mice.

the cats seem to be evolving with the mice at this moment. The cats may even surpass the mice and run the world down into some type of gutter where computers are so insecure that the government is forced to not be on the internet/use LAN anymore.

you really buy into that "Hackers are omnipotent beings who are so ingenius in their ideas" crud? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Please. Most 'hacks' are just scripts written by someone with a (vague) amount of knowledge.

Go on then Ken, write one that works and post it, if it is so easy.

sure. you want a trojan or something else? I mean think about this. you just do some simple winsock, and once you recieve it you do something like:

if(strcmp(clientbuffer,"opencddrive")==0)
mciSendString(....);

get the picture? I mean, it would take me a while to write a decent one, but to write one to just annoy pople a lil would be easy...

Maybe he wrote the 'one line of code' in notepad. If that was the case than it could have been the size of a novel.
