Woo Wednesday, hump day!
The boys at BensCustomCases looks at the Plextor
250GB NAS and it looks pretty useful! TechGage checks out the SilverStone
Strider ST56F 560W PSU and if you're looking for a nice unit, you'll want
to read this. Hardcoreware has a bit of dual core action going on and they pit
VS. the Pentium D Presler core. Digital Grabber talks about GAIN
and whether it is a program or virus.
A virus is legitimately defined as an executable program, however, any script
or macro should be included in that definition in my opinion. If they are written
with the intent of causing harm to a user’s computer or they are written
and installed on a user’s computer in order to gather information on that
user, then they are no better and no different than a virus, and should fall
under the same laws that apply to viruses.
If these programs like GAIN, Gator, and WinFixer are so legitimate, why
are the techniques they use to install it on a user’s computer so sly?
Why are they using these sneaky tactics, such as downloading it onto someone’s
computer without disclosing what it actually is to the user in a clear manner?
