Jim is one of the founding members of the Atomic Danger Squad.
Actually, Jim tried taking the blame upon himself and sent a credible threat to the mod team that caused me to curse his name and tear apart my system and rebuild it to counter the 'threat' he posed.
No, that's because Jim is a dirty snitch who ratted me out.
His trying to cover your ass actually caused me to even more secure my rig. Not sure I'm going to thank him for it though :wink: .
You actually believed him? Hee hee
Not so much. :wink:
After scaning my HD with the three AV that I had installed in my system, I found the threat to be reasonably minimal. However, the threat alone caused me to rethink my existing system and reconfigure it from 3 firewalls/AV using WinXX to 6 firewalls using various mixed OS. More hardware and additional learning on my part to further 'harden' my system. Had about a two hour conversation with an admin of security of a banking security IT dude about setting up a secure rig. Required adding/reconfiguring hardware that I already had in my system to block what 'Jim' had suggested as a threat. I continue to learn and further expand my system's security and genually appreciate the experience of upgrading my system to meet the new needs, I just don't like having a gun put to my head to do so.
I guess that I should be gratefull to 'Jim' for the lesson although it frosts my balls to admit that :wink: . I have better rig because of it.
