So what you need is an Annoying option that you can uncheck.
I would still opt for it.
As much as an info is annoying, it's still an info. For example, I like to know when a security/religious/whatever freak is coming my way, so I can avoid him/her. LOL
A security freak at Wilders? We don't have any of those here.
yes, if you know where i live and i let my PC unlocked while leaving... or you know my IP, or website I visit and can plant some hidden malware.
I would like to know pbusts setup
Hey! You guys gave me a good idea for a thread!
Whose setup would you like to know?
I guess I am old fashion and like privacy, don't like telling the world my every move. Like Facebook and tweeter etc...
No, it is not a bad idea.
When somebody is posting on a specific issue, it can be helpful to know what operating system and security applications they are using.
It's not a bad idea. If I were a hacker or virus writer(which I'm not), I don't need to read people's signatures in security forums to know which apps I'd need to bypass. There are plenty of webite reviews and all you really need to do is go on Google and do a search. If they are competent enough to write such programs then I'm sure they know how to search through Google for what they need to beat.
The other thing is that posting your setup may help someone who is looking for a certain app and you could be using something that may be what they need.
Guess I look like a hypocrite now...
Other for me, becuase I'm not really sure.
Other. Because some want to know what others are using, most likely out of curiosity, some don't give a rat's behind, and the rest are indifferent or are even annoyed by them, but it has no impact whatsoever on those who post their setups. Hackers are NOT going to pattern their attacks based on security forum member's security setups, who represent only a very small percentage of pc users worldwide.
You look to me like a person who has changed their mind.
And we're all entitled to that luxury.
I'd be in trouble if we weren't.
I don't really care if they know what I use or not. I'm not important enough to have my systems hacked into anyways.
Besides you can't really overcome offsite backups and disk-imaging for restoration purposes. The best any hacker can do inconvenience me for a moment. They can all go kiss off.
Only if you include your IP#.
It's a great idea.
Separate names with a comma.
