Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm glad I don't have windoze. I don't get much spam but I do get viruses from time to time. I wish they could hang those nuts, by them I might add. I'm to the point, where my friends are concerned that use windoze, I don't even care if they are teenagers. They just need to be stopped.
A few months back I was receiving almost 5 emails a day that were viri, when I tried to open them yahoo would not let me. Ive got a few in my inbox right now but cannot open them.
Writers of viri are vandals and should be jailed for life.
Originally posted by dalek Somebody that feels the same as me. I got plenty of trees and rope.
Don't burden the trees with that filth ; Use lightpoles.
Somebody bring them over. I also live real close to a big river. I have extra chains and blocks too.
And then be fined for "Environmental Crime"?(polluting the water)
No thanks. Stick with the rope-and-lightpoles.
And before anyone mentions it ; Don't feed them to the Jackals/rats/whatever other animal ; you might poison them(the animals , that is) and I'm vehemently opposed to animal-abuse.
Even ticks are too good for that scum.

That may be true if they use windoze. Hmmmmm. I want the person to know someone is spoofing, possibly, their address but if I just send them a note they then know my address is real, if they are the bad guys.
What should I do? The feds don't care, that's for sure. My little ISP can't do anything either. I have no hard feeling on turning them in for sure. I have reported some child porn sites. They go away pretty fast too. Local FBI office does real good on that.
What is your advice to do my part? Is there someone I can turn this into or what??
I get a fair number of bugs in email messages (hoorah for Evolution and Linux). I simply delete them. If the message was from someone you know, call or email them directly (don't forward the infected message). If you don't know them, treat it like spam, which it is in a way. A list of email addresses (real or not) is all that is required to spoof-send email/viruses/spam.
A call to ALL mail server admins. MAKE SURE YOUR EMAIL SERVER HELOS PROPERLY!!!!
That will at least reduce the fake ones for those of us using helo checks in our filters.
well...apart from the email virus in these days norton keep on warning me about virus detection and conseguent delete of it...even if i'm not viewing pages / checking mail ..i just have MSN and irc open (i dont click any stupid link on irc)
Sometimes these warnings are A LOT ... where do these virus come from??
Some ppl told me about a bad win update that could cause this...
I think that in this period MS system are getting 0wned by viruses and worms...it is not the right way to show MS does bad OSes...
A simple way to deal with virus makers, is to make an example to the rest by torturing and impaling a few virus/trojan makers on TV then parading their corpses through the Capital, to make an example to the rest. That way virus makers all around the world would tremble.
I just hope I never find reason to make viruses if this was the punishment.
