@ Joshua OchsSo... I flew across country to visit my family for the holidays. I used my old PC there to play WoW, though during the year I was gone it was used mainly by my young niece. If I had gotten hacked because of something my niece had clicked on, that would make me an idiot? Despite the fact that I had no way of knowing or monitoring her actions online? And despite the fact that she's just a child and not some tech-savvy security expert? I would be an idiot if she (or anyone) got the computer infected by a keylogger that the anti-virus software failed to catch? Or are you insinuating that anti-malware software is infallible? Face it. While there are certainly plenty of people who get hacked for foolish reasons, there are also people who take every precaution and are merely unfortunate enough to get infected either because they are targeted by a new hack that hasn't been caught/anticipated yet, or a brief lapse in judgement. (And, no, a brief lapse in judgement does NOT an idiot make. If that were the case, then there would not be a single person in the world who is not an idiot. We are all prone to mistakes.) I'm sorry we can not all live up to your obvious perfection.
