Hi everyone!

Just a self-introduction - my first post.

I stumbled across Bleeping Computers googling around for help/reassurance/instruments-of-vengeance on the topics of hacking and malware.

Specifically the About page "Why You Need a Second Opinion Malware Scanner" (http://netsecurity.about.com/od/antivirusandmalware/a/Second-Opinion-Malware-Scanners.htm)

I'm an older user without a lifetime of computer education - part of an increasing demographic I gather - and tend to appreciate what others say worked or didn't over what manuals assert.

One particular area of interest is the use of application weak-points for attacks, but generally I'm a black-hole for information of all sorts. I'm a reasonably accomplished gumby but a gumby for all that. An invitation to "try pasting this script" to some place I never knew my (or anyone's) computer might have had still hurts my head - particularly if it's more than one line long :wacko: .

Thus, many thanks for all the joint efforts that create and maintain a community such as this.

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
