Is there a point to this thread? There's nothing you can do to stop people from making viruses either targeting wallets or running botnet mining ops.

If I'm wrong and you have come up with something you can do to stop this, please speak up. Otherwise, this seems like useless ranting to me.

If the bitcoin community as a whole doesn't stamp out people using bitcoin to power and spread botnets for profit then someone else will, and people won't look too kindly at bitcoin over it, is the point I'm trying to get at.

And how do you propose that be done?

Yes, guilty as charged.
Look, i own several servers that run linux, and no way i would use windows to host websites.
I was trolling, but so was the user who posted the image.

Now more on-topic:
People need to understand that Linux or Mac are not what will keep their computers un-compromised.
Only good judgement and rationality can do that.
I had an IT teacher that once told me: "There is no anti-virus against human stupidity" and he was damn right.

no. to be blunt, you got jumped on for making a pointless thread.

everyone here knows viruses exist and should know how to prevent getting them. 

however, running around screaming "OMFG A VIRUS WE NEED TO STOP IT PEOPLE!!!!!!!" doesnt help the situation at all.  you cant do anything to stop viruses and botnets outside of securing your own computer.

people have told you that for 3 pages now.

Viruses have been made for all sorts of reasons. Bitcoins is no exception. Just like the mac viruses bitcoin's is becoming more mainstream enough to be a big target.

Who the D*CK let Windows defend your money? Are you crazy???
Put your leather wallet near the glass window on the sill, how much time it will stay there?
Why not use SAFE place for bitcoins?
