“Laughing About Symantec …

symantec

… is like kicking disabled children”, says Fefe, beloved German hacker, computer security expert, CCC member and super famous blogger. I don’t believe him and try out Symantec’s crypto checker – whatever that is – for myself …

SymantecOrca

… same story for me. Fuk me from behind! Selling snake oil is one thing but now they don’t even try to make it look like legit anymore. The consumer sheeples will buy the licensed shit anyway. Peepels, ladies and boyz, I said it often enough and I know most of you think Orca is much too insecure on the interwebz (admittedly I don’t use any anti-virus software or any other security bullshit but trust totally in the system-integral firewall) but I can tell you it’s not a problem. And as you can see, even my totally bog standard Firefox browser keeps me save and won’t open Symantec’s unauthorized files.

I’m far from being an expert on computer security but I never had any of these Nortons and Symantecs and other shit installed on any computer of mine. Not on Windows and now even less on Linux. And I can promise you my machines are, like, totally clean and free of any virae and malware and whatnots. Always keep in mind that the most dangerous computer virus is the one between your ears and you’ll be fine. 😉

    • Everybody can and will tell you that it is very possible to get a virus infection on your Linux system. Buuut …
      – virus and malware creators are trying to cause as much damage as possible, and the target group of Linux users is just too small to reach a widespread global panic. So they leave us alone.
      – Linux doesn’t accept anything without your express permission, so in the end it’s always the user who opens the gates for a virus or malware invasion.

      In my badly educated mind I admit ClamAV is surely made with the bestest of intentions but actually can’t do more than its commercial Windows siblings.

            • stay frosty
              A valediction which has come to mean “be cool,” but which more properly understood is an admonishment to stay alert and on one’s toes. See the quote below for the pop culture origin.
              “Hey! I know we’re all in strung out shape but stay frosty and alert. We can’t afford to let one of those bastards in here.”

              –Corporal Hicks (Michael Biehn), in Aliens (1986)

              Stay Frosty
              Earliest origin I have seen is the 1972 movie “The New Centurions” and is spoken by George C. Scott to the “newbie” Stacy Keach. The meaning is “Stay cool and in control”
              Try to stay frosty during a stop by the police

              —————————————————–

              Stay Frosty
              Military and or Law Enforcement jargon for “Stay alert, or watch you back or be on your toes”
              Stay frosty brothers, keep your head on a swivel and watch your 6

              ——————————————————-

              Stay Frosty
              To remain focused by not letting your emotions overcome you
              Foot soldier: (Horrified and distracted at the sight of a bunch of burned and dismembered Iraqi children lying on the side of the road)
              Officer: Stay Frosty…man the 50 cal., we can’t do anything for them now
