Re: No anti-virus software? No internet connection

I completely agree with Tom. A good fraction of all vulns out there rely on
the user taking the wrong action, and it's way common (just face the truth).

How many people install cracked OSes? I was once incredulous that a person
willingly installed a virus because he claimed it was harmless (while the
anti-virus shouted "trojan").

Sometimes I get to fix people's computers. I'm always amazed by the amount
of crap I get in contact with.  Hundreds of browser toolbars, antiviruses,
shareware, adware, trials, torrent clients, media players etc.
That not counting the local IT shops which format PCs replacing (typically)
Windows OS with a cracked one.

In a way having a requirement that end-users take some responsibility
for their own computer is a good thing.
Similar to prosecuting people for fraud if they fall for one of the cash
scams.
