Something to be aware of for your computer protection. Is nothing protected anymore?

Maybe I better buy a pair of new hard drives to mirror just in case. :hiding:

I saw something about this some time back on another forum. Currently it has to be physically installed on the computer and being malware is almost impossible for AV software to catch. Be careful where you get any software.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

Good thing I always use protection.
