Slightly concerned with the larger-than-expected number who consider having a good backup strategy as a "first line of defense".

    noscript+adblock+linux works, but I have caught a bug surfing a streaming site on linux with an uptodate FF and ( at the time ) only adblock.

    So beware of being too complacent, linux is much safer than windows for many reasons, but not all you need

    Main advantage of having linux: it got flushed out when I cleared my cache :)

    Ran antivirus, no more trouble, but still sorry about flooding the net for a coupla days ... :/
