Time for Microsoft Windows PC's to be blocked from Internet Access

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by Wintrolls Lie, Aug 7, 2009.

  1. Following the recent DDOS attacks against twitter, facebook and google
    from Microsoft Windows botnets isn't it time for Windows to be blocked
    from any Internet access? Microsoft Windows botnets also spew billions
    of SPAM email every day. Why should everyone suffer because Microsoft
    are unable to produce a secure operating system?

    OS X has a Botnet it's called iBotnet. How do you know
    that none of the attacks came from OS X boxes? How does an OS X
    user know if they have iBotnet or not? If they did ban all
    Windows PCs from the internet, they would be putting botnets on
    UNIX(OS X) and Linux systems. You guys just DON'T get it.

    We do not get "it", with "it" being malware. Windows users often do.

    Certainly iBotnet exists.
    The *only* way that is can spread is by downloading pirated copies of
    software - currently pirated copies of iWork ’09 or Adobe Photoshop CS4 by
    P2P. It can *not* replicate itself, and the only way that it spreads is
    via such a pirated copy.
    This is a long way removed from the way that Windows malware spreads!

    Could it apply to Linux?
    Presumably so. All that is needed is to download and run such code.
    Odds are even more reduced though - how many Linux users do you suppose
    pirate Linux software?

    How would a OSX user know if he had it? Presumably by scanning his

    You are quite right though - we categorically do *not* get it :)

    A goal devoutly to be wished but, from a practical standpoint, probably
    not gonna happen.

  7. Is it really that hard to run a program in Linux? No wonder it is so
    unpopular an OS. <bpo>

    Here I had thought that the main function of an OS was to facillitate
    the execution of programs of the user's choice. Sad that so much needs
    to be done to get Linux to execute a simple network robot. <sigh>

  11. Revision is in order:
    Ah, better, amen! (Now if Snit could go to school as he promised
    and stop trolling this group.) :)

    Do you have a problem with gays, Not-a-man? A little insecure in our own
    sexual orientation are we? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, where do we find the loadest
    homophobes? Tapping on the next cubicle in the loo, isn't it? You sound like
    a bit of a pervert, don't you. ;)

    And exactly what proof do you have that none of the attacks
    came from OS X iBotnet attacks? What proof do you have that any
    attacks at all came from Windows systems for that matter?
