Using IT Shouldn’t Be Like Hand-carrying Bags Of Money Through Gang-territory But It Is Thanks To M$ And Adobe

“bugs that allow hackers to hijack PCs via Internet Explorer, Word and Excel files, and Visual Basic scripts.
Everyone is urged to install the fixes, as well as a batch of updates from Adobe: a flaw in the Flash plugin is already being exploited by hackers to take over victims’ computers via the web.”
It would be tedious if it weren’t terrifying but just about every month we learn what the malware-industry already knows, non-FREE software stinks. Just using it to do ordinary things the way they were intended to be used exposes one’s IT to all kinds of criminals. Don’t blame the victims. Blame the purveyors of this garbage, M$ and Adobe, who force the world to use their stuff only to be victimized.

Break free of this crapware. Use Debian GNU/Linux, software designed to work for you, not the criminals.

See It's nearly 2015 รขโ‚ฌโ€œ and your Windows PC can still be owned by a Visual Basic script.

    The Microsoft faithful know when to stay away. There’s no defending the nightmare of Microsoft’s security vexed software.
