Re: Microsoft Disrupts the Emerging Nitol Botnet ...

So basically this botnet started because people in China were buying counterfeit Windows with malicious software prepackaged? I thought Asian people were supposed to be smart.

Oh well, even with legit Windows they would have had trojans after a few minutes of web browsing, so I guess it made no difference.

Getting people to stop using windows is more or less the same as trying to get people to stop smoking tobacco products. They dont want to change; they are happy with slowly dying inside. -- munky99999

They are a lot smarter. They got Windows for free, use like we do which we have to pay. And they don't care about trojans and viruses. I bet most if not all, use it casually for im, e-mails and skype.

They don't spend in front of the computer like for most of the day or for work.

Viruses ? So what ? Opps my pc is starting to slow down. Alright, let's reformat. No problemo.

Those who are aware of security, are even smarter. They use Windows free (100% clean) and make it legit.
