Badware and the Net

I’m continually seeing scare stories–from around the world, for that matter, as far as those translated to English–about various traps being used.  There’s the DNS flaw (it’s been around for a long time, with evidently no known way to actually fix it) and a new kind of visual file that isn’t static (from what I gather); it’s a movie.  I would expect that latter especially to especially be at the porn sites right now; sorry, guys.  I’m assuming there won’t be too much protest about sexually-based assumptions.  Oddly enough, I should add don’t click on any links unless you’re absolutely sure.  (Good luck.)

 

Moving to Linux isn’t a solution in any way, and I won’t even ever migrate wholly to it.  I might go into why it’s not anything approaching a solution at some other time…
