I will probably be flamed for this without proof. I have an xp machine with compromised operating system. One freely available from certain torrent
sources. I started seeing odd behavior on teh system, so did some research into it. Turns out the person that wrote and or uploaded the compromised os
has backdoor access to the system. The updates are authenticated as Microsoft which is false. Its actually someone who is using the xp updater service
to keep access to thees machines.
This script kiddie or whoever was on my system in the past made me ask questions and get engaged in the tech world. Everything i have learned was due
to him torturing my systems. I left that old compromised xp lappy around...its on my desk right now. He pops in from time to time, but never stays
too long now days.
Yes i know i sound like a fool. But i have been overtly led down the road into this techno wonder we call the web. Im not sure if he did this to teach
me or that was an unintended side effect.
The xp box is on right now and i as well have another update.....i installed one yesterday too.
Maybe im nuts and dont know what im talking about?
What do you think ats?
