Ah, the oldest excuse of all. ”I have nothing to hide, nothing to steal, I don’t download illegal stuff, I don’t use p2p, etc”. After all, all it takes is an infected ad-banner on a legitimate website, a vulnerability in your browser and your system could be infected with a bank trojan that empties your accounts or steals all your passwords etc… Of course it is always more or less bad luck, and browser fixes are more critical than underlying os, but why intentionally enlargen your risk. Serious problems regarding security- or driver updates are very rare on modern systems. I work on IT department, and we have -40k users, and ~5k computers on our administration, so I have seen it all during times.JennyLeez wrote: ↑Tue 20 Jun 2023 11:24 am
Well you are really really really going to love me
I would have no idea as to whether there are any security fixes as I have them turned off.
I turned them off long ago after too often they just mucked things up.
Over the years I have also had to fix many PCs where the security updates have corrupted their systems. Especially driver updates.
I am not the white house or Buckingham palace no one has any desire to hack me. I am boring
Now back to loading wood into the firebox. Mid winter here and cold cold cold
Of course it is anyones own choice how they value their privacy, money, social media accounts etc, but people should remember, that most effective hoaxes nowdays happen when someone of your friends have had their account hijacked. I’m not gonna argue more about this, but couldn’t be quiet either.
Ps. Weatherwise we have the opposite nowdays. Today almost +32˚C, not nice at all, I would probably be more comfortable even at -20˚C. Luckily my house has cooling system.
