And therein lies the crux of what I am talking about. You and I are
not typical lusers.

Your typical user is running Windows and is click happy. Thus we have
MILLIONS of zombie boxes participating and supporting the criminal
activities of thousands of botnets.

This is the security nightmare I rail against. And my privacy is
can directly be compromised by the existence of the zombies.

The zombies are coming! The zombies are coming! Head for the hills!

But, as I have already said, those who should listen to this advice
because they are most at risk care not to.
