Using both would be the wisest. adblock for firefox is incredibly useful, but the host file will work perfectly in conjunction with it. the host file will basically deny that content from even...

If this is for a company, then DO NOT use FC3. FC series is purley beta testing, and is purposly filled with experimental drivers/programs/functonality. This is because it is a testing playground for...

Usually not. With Compaq, HP, Dell, and the likes, the XP cd's they give are not full Windows XP Home cds. They are Windows XP Home + customizations for that specific set of hardware. It isn't a...

I think they won't even see it as a speed bump. Cracking windows activation and allowing you to use it fully takes less time and effort than getting any flavor of linux/bsd installed and working to...

Welcome to the forums, Kelly :) Hope you enjoy your time with us.
In regards to your IP address showing, we need to cover a few peices of ground concerning the forums. First, are the IP's visible...

As I said earlier in this thread, IE 6 SP2 and below are all based on the exact same beta-code that was released in IE4. That is why the browser was never top quality, and won't be until IE7. They...

Who cares if it is? If IE7 ends up being very secure, with tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, activeX filtering, and an improved core-base, then who cares if you use firefox or IE7? A browser is a...

That is exactally what I am saying. IE7 is going to include a number of system calls that signal the buffer checking from SP2/longhorn. to preform kernel level buffer checks, mem security handling,...

I give up. There isn't a thing I can say to you, because you need to sit down and read the white papers yourselves.
Windows 2k and lower are not capable of an XP SP2 kernel core functonality. It's...

Have you forgotten the history of Windows compatability? XP SP2 can still run 16bit applications from Windows 3.1
Don't try and play down their backwards compatability as some tin-foil-hat theme....

Careful. Firefox got tabbed browsing from Mozilla, which got it from Opera, which got it from Excel, which got it from UNIX tabbed terminals. Firefox got plugin capability from Kmelon, which got it...

Well, let's look back in history for a bit. The origonal IE 4 and 5 were horrible, because they were released into 95 and 98 as a beta product. They figured that they would rewrite it quickly, but...

< bitter sarcasim >You mean it might have errors, like every other peice of software ever made and thus might need a patch?!?! Oh noooss!! Like firefox, Opera, MyIE2, Safari, linux kernel, etc etc......

That's just apples and oranges, though. Outpost doesn't use the Kerio engine. Norton doesn't use the Sygate engine. They each have their own entirley different engine.
IPtables however is it's own...

There seems to be a lot of "front end" programs you've listed for Linux that do nothing more than alter ipchains/filter's configuration file.
Why not just say ipchains/filter instead of all...

I've used tor quite a bit, from firefox webbrowsing to even making my trillian communicator run through the proxy.
As far as I've seen, it's incredibly reliable and secure. DNS information may...

Welcome to AO, hottxt. And don't mind Specialist, as he isn't worth getting angry/annoyed/laughing over.
Hope to you see you posting :)

Just because it won't happen doesn't mean we shouldn't try to minimize potiential risks.
You know that ;)
And I agree on your edit. We should still try to create a newer OS based on better...

Incorrect. It's dead on. Think about it for a second.
That statement I made is nothing more than saying "Both have their flaws, but it isn't my job to make you fix either side.". I agree that we...

Negative, thanks for the insight on that :) Was not...

Assessing is one thing, complaining is another. Your origonal post and this post isn't about accessing the facts and figures of insecurity. It's about typical MS bashing that everyone has heard...

I have a little story for you, covering both a bit of advice and security at the same time. However, this isn't Access Point side security, it's the security you have as a wardriver :)
January 30th, 2005, 05:41 AM
For the same reason linux zealots are gung-ho about Windows being insecure. Fanboi-ism combined with "OMFG WE'RE BETTA". This guy's (in the parent article, not poster) argument and attack is no...
