    We select operating systems that don’t need specific anti-virus protection
    because they include security designs that don’t need to have special-case

    V.k. as always another gem,

    MBS use kaspersky or nod, they should do you. I would drink the eeye
    blink kool aid as well.

    Valdis,
    Please don’t speak for all security professionals. "We" do not do the
    same thing(s) you do. Also, it surprises me that you think Linux/OSX/etc
    are not virus capable. Exactly what "security designs" are you talking
    about?

    Sincerely,
    D

    Tell you what – you tell us how to get Kaspersky to do anything useful
    on a Solaris 10 box, and we’ll consider it. 😉

    "White listing" solutions can be a good approach (IMHO).

    Valdis,
    Being overly verbose and using a plethora of asterisks does not enhance
    the validity of your statement. I didn’t bother reading your statement
    due to its unnecessary length. Simply focus less on speaking for the
    "community" and confine your scope to your personal opinion….

    Valdis,
    Again, to clarify: I’m not interested in your actual opinion, only that
    you confine the scope of your opinion to yourself.

    Thanks!

    The example provides an easy to concoct scenario where perhaps
    anti-virus software might be employed to great benefit where the
    actual OS’s security would be a moot point. A sort of catalyst for
    expanding VK’s ability to consider the other side of the argument, by
    not handing this to him on a…
