...I read on that NATO may be considering an Article 5 response to global cyber terrorist attacks like the one that just occurred.

I see that....we'll see how well all will play together before getting any hopes up....

a safe heaven for someone who "don't give a f*** is silly


they DONT CARE
when you can go a year without seeing someone drop litter or knock off a flower head
yes yes not same "class" but still a norty in a good world


some people are just NOT nice ..........there not attacking YOU as a person ( well maybe if its X wifes new b/f lol )
ur just a means to an end
even most phishing attacks don't want YOU or ur bank details {heck if they change the red to black I'll empty account before they can pmsl}
they want ur comp to perform DOS attacks on ......big biz / government maybe banks lol
then thys can crash them ...................then they get a great job with opps I cant say apple or microstuff can I ??
or maybe they do 6 months in jail get a rep then come out "reformed" an start a security company
there first weeks wage makes ur bank account look like petty change 


the points been made that some company's may be late in updates etc
WE shouldn't be !! most of us would lose then nothing but a day or 3 ( not if its ur cash cow lol but us that are doing as a hobby)


I'd bet that's theres not one peep in this forum would meet a cute stranger.........sign up for a squillion squids insurance policy naming THEM THEN GO FOR A NEKID SKYDIVE


YET U DO EVERTIME U AVOID AN IMPORTANT UPDATE
opps cap lock sorry
don't get me wrong at the mo I got 150 squids worth of rats that don't work ...........windoze or gpu drivers I not sure
rolled back gpu drivers but then they updated to windows drivers on next reboot
so I got a 70 squid mouse on floor an a 3 squid one in hand arrrghhhhhhhhhhh
but I do my updates an giggle at the bad speliing in a phishin email

..yeah whne I purchased a notebook years ago it came with McAffee.  A got hit by a n annoying redirect virus that piggybacked during an MS auto update which slipped right through. The virus would randomly redirect legit searches I Would make to porn sites (a real embarrassment when at a cafe).  Finally rooted it out with the help of several third party utilities and the replaced McAffee with another much better AV utility that businesses use. I also have the same firewall setup on my workstation which even though it isn't connected to the Net, still receives updates I download to the notebook then transfer to it by secure USB stick.

That would not be the only thing I'd scare to death! It's really bad when you're scared of your own reflection! LOL
DAZ Studio, Bryce, Poser, Wings 3D, Howler, Blender, PSP, Hexagon, MSO PowerPoint & Word, just a few of the programs I use.

I also have the same firewall setup on my workstation which even though it isn't connected to the Net, still receives updates I download to the notebook then transfer to it by secure USB stick.

When I first started with them I had problems but after working with them and becoming a beta tester I had very few problems.   Use to be a son of a gun getting the updates...but that's fixed now also.  A lot of times folks don't take the time to remove ALL PARTS of the previous Virus program they had on their computer and that causes "Open Doors" even with the best Virus protection.  As I said...Not crazy over their new LIVE....It seemed to work great in Beta Testing but I'm thinking they disregarded some of the suggestions made.  So I'm hunting.

If anyone has suggestions or views on what programs they like best...throw them at me....All will be welcomed.
