Re: Software on rented PCs can spy on you

Exactly. Who's more likely to hack an account? James Bond tapping my phone line or an Azerbaijani script kiddie, looking to steal a credit card to load up on a game service or a skype account?

This entire argument is reductio ad absurdum.

I don't think that expression means what you think it does, but anyway, this entire discussion got ridiculous when you announced that you "weren't stupid enough" to do any banking on your computer.

To hell with that ... to introduce a little levity here:
