    Hi guys!

    I'm sure you are all wondering what the NSA is writing about Microsoft. I have to say that some hints aren't that bad. To be honest with you, if everyone would set his computer like that, hackers would have a really hard time. But check it out for yourself:

    Let me know what you're thinking about it!

    Best regards!

    NSA is kind of paranoid. You can secure any system as much as you like, but, please, a computer serves a purpose: you have to be able to work with it.

    Have a look at www.cisecurity.org for a more practical approach. There are more security baslines available:

    And for dutch readers: www.platforminformatiebeveiliging.nl

    Hi meneer!

    Perhaps you're right when you call them paranoid, but at least they know the source code from Microshit. And who else does? I think they know exactly where the weaknesses are, right?

    As I mentioned in another post already, you need to know how they attack that you know how to defend yourself!

    I will work myself through your links!

    Best regards!
