Microsoft to Offer Free SpywareStarting next year Microsoft will offer a free program that will give them and govt. agencies complete access and control over user's computers.
Ever loyal to the darkest forces in the universe and the creation of bad software, Microsoft has announced it will be giving away a spyware program called Morro.
The program is disguised as anti-virus and anti-spyware software but in reality will provide direct access to user’s computers for Microsoft and various govt. agencies who pay Microsoft an access fee.
Windows software has always been insecure by design and invites infection by viruses, trojans and other malware. In contrast, Linux and MAC operating systems are designed to be secure and rarely infected.
In 2001, The German foreign office and Bundeswehr banned Microsoft software because it was impossible to make it truly secure and using the software presented a security risk for the govt. (http://www.linux.com/feature/9540)
Windows is still insecure by design and the only way to make it somewhat secure is to purchase third-party software, however, the most popular security software is also spyware.
Symantec’s Norton security software can be remotely activated to give control over a computer and install viruses, trojans, key loggers and other mal-ware. Norton Systemworks has been caught indexing hard drive files and sending the data to the Defence Intelligence Agency. It is impossible to complete uninstall the program without reformatting the hard drive.
If you want your computer to be secure from outsiders then the only option is to build your own or buy one which is not made by a major manufacturer and then install a Linux operating system.
Building your own computer is actually quite easy and if you choose components carefully you can have a fully functional system up and running in less than an hour.
The best Linux distributions are free and come with most all of the software you could ever need. The latest versions are very user friendly and there is plenty of free support available.
The only issue with Linux is with some hardware and software manufacturers who take cash from Microsoft to deliberately make their products incompatible with Linux. So, before you buy hardware make sure that it is Linux compatible and us open-source Linux software.
