Just something a friend of mine said in work the other day, he has been using computers for years and he said that he has never used anti virus and cant understand why anyone uses antivirus or a firewall He says that if you are going to get a virus you will get it anyway with or without anti virus.
Well, I've got a hardware firewall, I run avg and Script Sentry (which warns when anything's written to registry) and a Kerio firewall. Just went to do my weekly av scan at Housecall and the trojan Istbar.AM was making it's little home in my system.32 folder. Naughty little blighter. It's not a happy bug as avg is now exterminating it. How did it pass all my security?
