hebr, it is MATHEMATICS, which is a skill greatly lacking in this country. So yeah, I understand your sarcasm, most of you believe anything that a banker or TV moron says... just can't add 2 and 2 together.
But getting back to XP machine rootkits...besides forcing you to new OS, they've also "collaborated" with CIA on a Windows 7 backdoor (for those "get tin foil hat" people - of course they deny it, they signed an agreement):
Microsoft denies it built 'backdoor' in Windows 7 Don't worry, company tells users; NSA involved only in security compliance standards.
Microsoft today denied that it has built a backdoor into Windows 7, a concern that surfaced yesterday after a senior National Security Agency (NSA) official testified before Congress that the agency had worked on the operating system.
"Microsoft has not and will not put 'backdoors' into Windows," a company spokeswoman said, reacting to a Computerworld story Wednesday.
