Re: Dumb users spread viruses
SD> Date: Sun, 8 Feb 2004 15:41:53 -0500 (EST) SD> From: Sean Donelan SD> http://www.silicon.com/software/security/0,39024655,39118228,00.htm Not surprising. In our experience, "I'm not concerned about security, because I don't have anything really important on the computer" is all too common of an attiude. Most of our users are reasonable, however. With a little explanation about the harm an insecure computer can cause, they understand and accept the fact that they're not islands. Of course, many still get infected with spyware and viruses. At least they're willing to have their computers repaired... better than nothing, but still not as good as being proactive. :-/ Eddy -- EverQuick Internet - http://www.everquick.net/ A division of Brotsman & Dreger, Inc. - http://www.brotsman.com/ Bandwidth, consulting, e-commerce, hosting, and network building Phone: +1 785 865 5885 Lawrence and [inter]national Phone: +1 316 794 8922 Wichita _________________________________________________________________ DO NOT send mail to the following addresses : email@example.com -or- firstname.lastname@example.org -or- email@example.com Sending mail to spambait addresses is a great way to get blocked.
