Hi Nooby,

They look like a fiendishly clever and dastardly group. I note that even as you posted they managed to steal the letter “E” from your post’s title! Shocked

I wonder what they wanted it for.? Question

Ye gads, the swine’s, their leader has incorporated it into his own name! Laughing

Wishing you better health,

Interesting article nooby. Sounds like the most common vectors for Mac and Linux infection were itunes servers and Firefox plugins.

Pretty complex and intricate malware. I bet it's been an easy harvest for them via Ubuntu. Hopefully not so much via Puppy.

greengeek even if we are small compared to the big boys we still
get read by some 10 out of 90 who click on Distro watch lists.

If they read or only click? for to feel complete then in case
they get asked. "What do you know about Puppy Linux and
they can show them that already have actually looked at us
and maybe downloaded files?

Such worry me at times that some ruthless villain know too much
and do have the know how to make something sinister.

I agree nooby. I think it is very clear that those villains became ingrained in Microsoft itself very early on (maybe 15 years ago?) and have likely been able to find their way into Apple since Steve Jobs death. In my opinion they also have close links with Cisco and other similar manufacturers of network switchgear (the work of the NSA confirms this) and I wouldn't mind betting that Canonical has an evil smell about it too. Not even going to mention Android.

Can puppy stay clean and fresh? Hmmm. Hard to say, I think there is a real risk when puppies become fat - more room to hide evil (or badly written) code - especially when that code is built upon packages from Canonical perhaps?

But I lack the knowledge to really know the truth. I keep watching to see which puppies are built quick and lean - in the hope that they carry less fleas.

I love the cutdown puppies like slacko thin, jrb's barebones, goingnuts pupngo work, Barrys new Quirky etc etc. My hope is that close scrutiny combined with a drive for innovative efficiency may keep puppy as honest as possible.

Well - shortly after posting here I lost connection - they dig up the road and cut the cable! I am sure there are no connection Rolling Eyes
