    did you just say narsty? are you making up words? you are either really young or really old

    i'd love to know what kind of hidden gems are hidden in some software available on sourceforge. you know, the kind that isn't popular enough to bother auditing.

    The more politically correct term is "Experienced".

    Actually, you have answered your own question. malware authors and users are "percentage players"

    If it isn't popular, it isn't worth writing an exploit for because you won't find a victim.

    If it is malicious of itself, you have wasted it by putting it on a site where it isn't popular. You put it on sites where idiots go: warez, crackz and P2P

    I invent English words as I see fit..............it is my birthright ...............

    And when I started programming there were NO nancy boy GUIs, hell, there weren't even VDUs............ It was 80 column punched cards.......... real man's stuff .................and Bill Gates was getting busted for smoking dope..................
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
