    I don't see anything wrong here lol browser are vulnerable and if you store your passwords in them they are too. Browsers are full of all sorts of exploits and click jacking, cross site scripting and all sorts of shit they can key log you right in the browser if they want and java script problems and this code and that code.

    You guys do seem pretty trigger happy with all your IOT stuff like everyone seems to a have a ring door bell because its the new cool. Alexa like that is a red flag who thinks its a good idead to have something listen to you all the time?

    The sort of people that lap these things up are the ones that need the cyber sticker and its a catch 22. I can understand cctv in the home if the person actually knows what they are doing. But this ring door bell craze is the new black and it seems at least in the US everyone has one. Over here its far less common people have these things but like not every house on the street etc.

    These same type will be the first to lap it up when we go inside the computer. Because the sticker told them it was good idea.

    No, i should have done the classic forum attitude instead and said... Google on it yourself an read.
    That is the classic attitude.. But you got a detailed answer of F22 Simpilot, so you don't have to google it now.
    I was going to say? Did I waste my time? It's been on my mind for two days and I'm like "really?"

    You did an excellent post, i think that will learn a thing or two for those who want to learn.
    I am impressed though with your energy and you take your time and explain things for people in here.
    I gave up years ago when i started to hate computers. Best is just to give them a hint of it.. and make them take their time to look it up for learning.. as those who don't want to learn will never read a wall of text anyway, they just want to argue out of their bubble.
    a lot of Linux-believers people is stupid too and even worse then windows believers as Linux bubblers they think they are safe from hacking and malware just because they have installed a linux distro out of the box. *LOL* (yeah i know there are Linux people in here, but i have not said anything i already have said on linux forums, and you know I'm right on this statement about Linux being soooo safe)

    Yeah... I try, and I try...and I try... It's sometimes like leading a horse to water... you can't choke the horse! LOL I've often been wrong though and that's sometimes part thanks to the poster's fine writing skills... or lack of there of. Sometimes it's hard to ascertain what the issue really is and things get misconstrued. Others somehow are able to see right past that and can answer and fix the issue and I'm like 'da hell?' LOL

    Yes! Absolutely Linux is not 100% hack proof or somehow immune to malware. People who run Ubuntu or whatever for their server know this all too well... I think I mentioned this up above, but nothing is hack proof. I'm sure you agree. It's just the way it is and will be. Until maybe AI can patch things faster than the exploits go public. Like in seconds or minutes... Really interesting the future will be. That's for certain.

    Every time I think of AI I think of that scene in the movie The Matrix called "The Dessert of The Real."

    "We don't know who struck first, us or them... but what we do know is that it was us that scorched the sky... Faint it seems is not without a sense of irony."

    My absolute most favorite Sci-Fi movie. I don't care for Star Wars or Star Trek. But The Matrix? Hands done the best. It's like a hybrid of The Terminator, which is another one of my favorite genres of movies.

    Anyway....

    I had to look up "the dessert of the real". I remember that scene in the movie even it was 8-10 years ago i saw it... and i think common users like Neo in the end of that scene would puke if the know the truth. That's why many(not all) security researchers and white hat hackers almost become paranoid with their own stuff at home.

    Cisco Systems in their new network hardware series that is comming have begun using AI to identify malware and intrusions and stop it before any human even can react... they talked a lot about it on Cisco Live.... So the future is already here

    I categorize Matrix as Fiction.. Sci-fi to me is aliens and space.. but that's me. *lol*
