Re: Securing your computer
I think there is one point people seem to forget, internet explorer and/or other browsers that have java enabled are vunerable, as new trojans are about that are currently undetectable, when you visit some sites a trojan script is installed on your Computer enabling others to remotely compromise your network or PC, this effectively bypasses all your security.
I good suggestion is to disable Java in your browser, you can always select the sites you trust and add them to your trusted sites list.
