in thread What is your first line of defence against computer viruses?

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 ... :/
