Re: blocking Google Desktop

I am using Google desktop version 4. By default search across computers is
not enabled. Can someone explain me why all the noise if I just don't use
the feature.

I believe that educating the users is the best way to safeguard against
issues like this. As my understanding says most of the incidents take place,
not because of technical superiority of the attacker (virus)(It applies to
issues like GDS as well) but because of social engineering or insufficient
due diligence from user's part.

PS: No offense to anyone. If what I am thinking is wrong kindly correct me.
