it doesn't matter too much in the short term, this will only last as long,
people of all backgrounds will eventually get pissed and involved, it's inevitable.
these kinds of things unite people, the only problem is their mind control is so powerful it would take a week without television and papers to pull it off.
btw i'm getting an imac on sunday, probably the best computer for such a government virus wouldn't you agree?

haha that's great, I believe it too!
I've been putting a folded sticky note over my webcam out of sheer paranoia for the past 2 or 3 years
I could do that but I will not. I have no fear for I am innocent.

The Flame/SkyWiper bugs are not simple virus's like BO or S7.
F/SW is a compilation of - bulky - packages (The Israelis might make great weapons, but their software blows) that require LAN access or a physical drive (flash drive) to manually infect the target PC's.
F/SW targets Micro$oft systems only.
If you want peace of mind, get Ubuntu/Mint and have a good security policy(back-ups, drive images, anti-virus, firewall, etc). Stay away from Apple.
Personally I would recommend Mint 13 Cinnamon as it is very easy(easier than Winblows) for a n00b to install and have the OS working from the word go.
