Do you really think you will be safe if you run an antivirus program?
If you do, then you are MAD, MAD, MAD!!!! Melih
Nope, but I can run GesWall and will be completely sure that my PC is clean.
the “Nope” may apply to the Melih
's term “MAD”. That is a bit harsh (I think)
Neither mad, nor crazy, no insane … but just a tiny little bit more safe than “completely unsafe” - that's all
I disagreed with Melih
on many points including current v4 implementations, but I may agree with him here (except the “mad”-terminology
AVs, basically any AV – are losers in this war – we are not safe with them.
...but I disagree with your statement, bequick
that you are “ completely sure” that your PC is clean running GesWall... or actually anything else.
I am not going into unneeded debate here, that there is no such security that can provide us with 100% security/protection
Only the computer that was never connected to Internet / LAN and that is switched off – is safe
As soon as you switch it on; have connection enabled (wired or wireless); WOL is on / or... “bluetooth” is near you
; etc... you “have a chance”
No need to be paranoid, but there is no such thing as “completely sure”
Finally, the topic was about AV & GesWall is not that in any case... meaning... I am not sure why it was mentioned here
My regardsp.s. a side note addressed to Melih
- you'r absolutely right! that there is basically no protection when one is using AV ... that's old stuff;
we cannot rely on it completely ...
So, once again (and as many users here already pointed out) why would you spend time & resources; your talented developers' brains-power for developing AV in the 1st place
... when you could improve and make existing Firewall more powerful.
Few of my friends are still using the latest 2.4, doing "crazy stuff" and still are protected excellently
