XP SP2 Flaws

I have been watching the tech news the last week or so, and there is a big todo about these new XP SP2 Flaws found. I watched and watched, waiting for someone to retaliate, and I finally found the rebuttal I was looking for. The bottom line is, if a user runs a program, that is their choice. The OS can’t stop that. The person should have anti-virus running to see that. They should also only run things from trusted sources. If you goto hacker warez land and start downloading exe’s, and running them, what do you expect? If you play with fire, you are eventually going to get burned. One other thing is people should believe everything they read on the web. If I put a link to an exe on here, you should make sure it doesn’t have viruses, if it tries to connect to the web, ask me why, etc.
